Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Where Were You 6  Alan Jackson

[C]Where were you when the world stopped turning that September Day
[C]Out in the yard with your wife and children, working on some stage in LA
[F]Did you stand there in shock at t[C]he site of that black smoke Rising against
that blue sky
[Am]Did you shout out in anger in fear [F]for your neighbor, or did you just sit
down and cry
[G]Did you weep for the children who lost th[C]eir dear love ones or pray for the
ones who don't know
[G]Did you rejoice for the people w[C]ho walked from the rubble and sob for the
ones left below
Did you burst[F] out in pride for the Red White and [C]Blue
And the heroe[F]s who died just doing what they[C] do
[Am]Did you look up to Heaven f[F]or some kind of answer and look at yourself and
what really matters
[C]I'm just a singer of simple songs; I'm not a real political man
[F]I watch CNN, but I'm not sure I can tell you, the difference in Iraq and
Iran
[C]But I know Jesus, and I talk to God And I remember this from when I was
young
[G]Faith, hope and Love are s[C]ome good things he gave us, and the greatest is
Love
[C]Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
[C]Teaching a class full of innocent children, Or driving down some cold
interstate
[C]Did you feel guilty cuz you're a survivor, in a crowded room did you feel
alone
[Am]Did you call up your mother[F] and tell her you love her Did you dust off that
bible at home
[G]Did you open your eyes and hope it never ha[C]ppened, close your eyes and not
go to sleep
[C]Did you notice the sunset, first time in ages and speak to some strangers on
the street
[F]Did you lay down at night [C]and think of tomorrow, go out and buy you a gun
[Am]Did you turn off that violent [F]old movie your watching and turn on I Love
Lucy reruns
Did you[F] go to a church and hold hands with some [C]strangers,
[F]Stand in line and give your own blood          [C]
[Am]Did you just stay home and cling tigh[F]t to your family thank god you had
somebody to love
[C]I'm just a singer of simple songs; I'm not a real political man
[F]I watch CNN, but I'm not sure I can tell you, the difference in Iraq and
Iran
[C]But I know Jesus, and I talk to God And I remember this from when I was
young
[G]Faith, hope and Love are s[C]ome good things he gave us, and the greatest is
Love
[C]I'm just a singer of simple songs; I'm not a real political man
[F]I watch CNN, but I'm not sure I can tell you, the difference in Iraq and
Iran
[C]But I know Jesus, and I talk to God And I remember this from when I was
young
[G]Faith, hope and Love are s[C]ome good things he gave us, and the greatest is
Love
[G]and the greatest is Love, [C]and th[G]e greatest is Love          [C]
[C]Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
