Unknown (written by John Newton)

Unknown (written by John Newton)'s, "Amazing Grace"
Better Lyrics:
Amazing Bass

Amazing bass, how sweet the sound,
That comes from this guitar.
I once was lost but now I've found,
An axe, to take me far.

T'was bass that caught my heart and ear,
And bass, that set me free.
I feel complete, my eyes do tear,
Plucking, E A D G.
Original Lyrics:
Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed.
