Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Where Were You 10  Alan Jackson

[G]Where were you when the world stopped turnin'

[D]That september [G]day

[G]Out in the yard with your wife and children
Or [D]workin' on some stage in L.[G]A.
Did you [C]stand there and sob at the [G]sight of that black smoke
[C]Rising against that blue [G]sky
Did you [C]shout out in anger in [G]fear for your neighbor
[D]Or did you just sit down and [C]cry
[G]Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
and [D]pray for the ones who don't [G]know
Did you re[G]joice for the people who walked from the rubble
And [D]sob for the ones left [G]below
Did you [C]burst out in pride for the [G]red white and blue
and the [C]heros who died just [G]doing what they do
Did you [C]look up to heaven for [G]some kind of answer
And [D]look at yourself and [C]what really matters
Chorus


[C]I'm just a singer of [G]simple songs
I'm not a[C] real political [G]man
I watch [C]CNN but i'm no[G]t sure I could tell you
the [D]difference in Iraq and I[C]ran
But [C]I know Jesus and I[G] talk to God
And I [C]remember this from when I was [G]young
[C]Faith hope and love are some [G]good things he gave us
[D]  And the greatest is [C]love
*The rest of the verses follow the same chords as the first.
