Amazing Grace ~ 3 Chords

Amazing Grace

D                 G         D
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
  D                 G       D
I once was lost but now I'm found
              A7    D
Was blind but now I see 

                           G        D
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
    D                 G      D
How precious did that grace appear
           A7      D
The hour I first believed 

                     G         D
Through many dangers toils and snares
We have already come
   D                         G         D
It was Grace that brought us safe thus far
               A7       D
And Grace will bring us home

repeat #1

                        G        D
We've all been here ten thousand years
Bright shining like the sun
      D               G          D
We've no less days to sing God's praise
             A7    D
Than when we first begun

  1. My wife sings this to the tune of house of the rising sun and it fits. I like this version as it is easier to play.

    1. If I can get Steve to play along with me, he does some great picking to The House of the Rising Sun (or at least he did before he stashed his guitar in the closet). Actually last night he picked it up and played with me for about 15 minutes. It's a start. I'm so happy that I took it out of his closet and set it up. I can not wait to see how this sounds. Thanks so much for sharing. I have really been enjoying getting to know you and your wife better through our comments and replies. It's nice to have a more personal touch with my blog-land friends.
      Have a wonderful day, Connie :)

  2. Connie,
    I am so happy to stumble upon your site. I am attempting to teach myself how to play my 6 string, and I could use all the help that I can get. I decided to start with Amazing Grace. I' am not sure about the strumming, is there a certain strumming pattern that I'm supposed to use? Any advise would help :) I also wanted to say that your reference to John Denver jumped out at me! I just love his music and miss him.
    Good Bless -- Michele
