 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
