Where Were You - Alan Jackson
(Tune to the Key of E and Capo On 5th Fret)

A minor note of both versions; studio and live, the man
himself sings....on the line"Were you in the yard..." and "Out in the
yard....." pick the version and enjoy as I and millions of
American's have!!!!

Where were you when the world stopped turnin'.....
D                            G
On That September day
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
     D                                         G
Or workin' on some stage in L.A.
             C                                                 G
Did you stand there in the sight of that black smoke
C                                       G
Rising against that blue sky....
             C                                    G
Did you shout out in anger in fear for your neighbor
     Em                                       C ----- D
Or did you just sit down and cry

Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
       D                                             G
and pray for the ones who don't know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
        D                                 G
And sob for the ones left below
             C                                          G
Did you burst out with pride... for the red white and blue
             C                                 G
and the heros who died just doing what they do
               C                                   G
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
        Em                         C
And look at yourself and what really matters

C                               G
I'm just a singer of simple songs
         C                           G
I'm not a real political man
               C                       G
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I could tell you
       Em                                C
the difference in Iraq and Iran
         C                         G
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
         C                                                       G
And I remember this from when I was young
C                                                 G
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
D                           C
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning...
D           G
On that September day
Teachin' a class full of innocent children
     D    G
Or driving down some cold interstate
 C           G
Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor
       C                      G
In a crowded room did you feel alone
   C               G
Did you call up your mother...and tell her you love her
   Em         C ----- D
Did you dust off that bible at home

Did you open your eyes..hope it never happened
D          G
Close your eyes and not go to sleep...

Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
     D          G
Or speak with some stranger on the street
   C          G
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
C      G
Go out and buy you a gun
    C             G
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watching
        Em              C
And turn on "I Love Lucy" re-runs
   C                        G
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
C             G
Stand in line and give your own blood
    C              G
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
 Em               C
Thank God you had somebody to love


Repeat Last Line Of 2nd Chorus 3x

Where were you when the world stop turnin'
On that September day
