Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)
By Alan Jackson


C					   G		     C
Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
G			     C
Or working on some stage in L.A.
	F			    C
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke 
F			 C
Rising against that blue sky
        F			C
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Am			      F
Or did you just sit down and cry

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


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


C					  G		     C
Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
   G				C
Or driving down some cold interstate
    F			    C
Did you feel guilty 'cause you're a survivor
     F  			C
In a crowded room did you feel alone
	F			C
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her
	Am			F
Did you dust off that bible at home

Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened
G					C
And you close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
G				  C
Or speak to some stranger on the street
	F			C
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
F		     C
Go out and buy you a gun
    	F			  C
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin'
Am			  F
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns

F				C
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
F				C	
Stand in line and give your own blood
	F			 C
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Am				F
Thank God you had somebody to love

Repeat Chorus 2X

Am		    F
And the greatest is love  3X
C					   G		     C
Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day-----
