Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. more »

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

Twas grace that taught my heart to fear 
And grace my fears relived
How precious did that grace appear 
The hours I first believed
Amazing grace how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found 
I was blind but now I see

Now when we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise 
That when we first begun
Amazing grace how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found 
I was blind but now I see

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