VERSE 1
D          Bm           G             A
The summer breeze made ripples on the pond
D                       Bm            G             A
And rattled through the reeds and the willow trees beyond
Bm           A            G            D
Daddy in his good hat and mama in her Sunday dress
D                        Bm                 G       A      D
Watched with pride as I stood there in the water up to my chest
        C              G                  D
And the preacher spoke about the cleansing Blood
G            D              Bm              A
As I sank my toes into that cool East Texas mud

CHORUS
          D             Bm
And it was down will the old man
G A         D
Up with the new
G          D                   Bm        A
Raised to walk in the ways of light and truth
Bm               G              D                 G
I didn't see no angels, just a few saints on the shore
      D          A        Bm
And I felt like a new-born baby
       G         A           D
Cradled up in the arms of the Lord

VERSE 2

D       Bm     G                A
Amazing grace, oh how sweet the sound
         D            Bm             G             A
There was glory in the air, there was dinner on the ground
      Bm              A          G               D
And my sins which were many, were washed away and gone
D                    Bm          G      A        D
Along with a buffalo nickel I forgot to leave at home
        C                  G            D
But that seemed like such a small, small price to pay
G               D                  Bm              A
For the blessed peace of mind that came to me that day

TO CHORUS

    C                G
This road is long and dusty,
              Bm      A        D
Sometimes the soul, it must be cleansed
     C                 G              Bm         A
And I long to feel that water, rushing over me again

TO CHORUS
