“AMAZING GRACE”

 VERSE 1

Amazing Grace, she’s on the bus now, headed downtown to take her place

And oh that face, behind the beauty, she’s so lonely and wants a change

 

VERSE 2

She’s just 18, the boys are waiting, and they’re wanting some Amazing Grace

And she’ll go with a smile, but all the while, she’ll be crying inside

 

 

CHORUS 1

Amazing Grace, I hear her praying

For someone to take her place

Amazing Grace, she came from nothing

Just wants to be something, Amazing Grace

 

 

VERSE 3

Then one night, things got crazy, and she was fighting for her life

In a drunken rage, he tried, but on that night, she killed a man

 

 

VERSE 4

Now locked away, she cries, she’s so sorry, what a wasted life

Until that day, a man with a Bible told her ‘bout the One who took her place

 

 

CHORUS 2

Amazing Grace, I hear her singing ‘bout the One who took her place

Amazing Grace, she came from nothing, now she’s something

Amazing Grace

 

BRIDGE

Though I never knew her, I’m told she was my mother

For her crime, she had to die, but she was sanctified…

 

END

Here I stand, where she lay, thinking ‘bout the One who took my place
