When applying for a job should I list my most recent jobs or my relevant past jobs?

I’ve had many different jobs over the years in many different areas: clerical, laborer, restaurant, driver, etc.

When applying for a new job, on the application it will say “List your previous 3 jobs”. Suppose I was applying for a clerical position. Should I list my most recent jobs, or the ones pertaining to clerical experience?

But what if my last 3 jobs were real crappers, lasting only a few weeks or months, but 5 jobs ago I had really good jobs that lasted years. Then I might not get an interview at all.
