Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)
Written and recorded by Alan Jackson

C
Where were you when the world stopped turning
G7 C
On that September day

Were you in the yard with your wife and children
G7 C
Or working on some stage in LA

F C
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
F C
Risin' against that blue sky
F C
Did you shout out in anger in fear for your neighbor
Am F G7
Or did you just sit down and cry

C
Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones
G7 C
And pray for the ones who don't know

Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
G7 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

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 can tell you
Am F
The difference in Iraq and Iran

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
G7 F G7
And the greatest is love

C
Where were you when the world stopped turning
G7 C
On that September day

Were you teaching a class full of innocent children
G7 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 G7
Did you dust off that Bible at home

C
Did you open your eyes hope it never happened
G7 C
And close your eyes and not go to sleep

Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
G7 C
Or speak to some stranger on the street

F C
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
F C
Or 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

C
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
F C
Did you 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

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 can tell you
Am F
The difference in Iraq and Iran

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
G7 C
And the greatest is love


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 can tell you
Am F
The difference in Iraq and Iran

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
G7 F
And the greatest is love

G7 F
And the greatest is love
G7 F
And the greatest is love
C
Where were you when the world stopped turning
G7 C
On that September day
