"When She Sang Amazing Grace"

[Verse 1]
When I was a child my mama would hold me
In her lovin' arms when the storm clouds come along
The dark clouds rising, storms a-ragin'
She'd sing an old gospel song

[Verse 2]
With the thunder crashing, lightning flashing
I found comfort in the words that she would sing
Beyond these dark skies there's a rainbow
That only love and the sun will bring

[Chorus]
When she sang "Amazing Grace"
I felt tears in my eyes
When she sang "Circle Be Unbroken"
I knew there were bluer skies

[Verse 3]
Time rolled on, the circle was broken
Mama went on to somewhere beyond the blue
I started ramblin' that lost highway
And hard livin' took away the little child she knew

[Verse 4]
I started drinking and I started gambling
I had no one to look over me
There was no blue skies, only sorrow
And I could only hear her sing in my memory

[Chorus]
When she sang "Amazing Grace"
I felt tears in my eyes
When she sang "Circle Be Unbroken"
I knew there were bluer skies

[Verse 5]
I was runnin' with a wild bunch
Hanging with the rough and the rowdy kind
I was living fast and I was dying young
So alone, Lord, I had a worried mind

[Verse 6]
I was drunk and I was hurtin'
Somewhere on the streets in New Orleans
When I stumbled into a little shelter
I saw an angel with a tambourine

[Chorus]
When she sang "Amazing Grace"
I felt tears in my eyes
When she sang "Circle Be Unbroken"
I knew there were bluer skies

[Outro]
When she sang "Amazing Grace"
I felt tears in my eyes
When she sang "Circle Be Unbroken"
I knew there were bluer skies
When she sang "Amazing Grace"
I felt tears in my eyes
When she sang "Circle Be Unbroken"
I knew there were bluer skies
