Alan Jackson - Where Were You (When The World Stop Turning)

Printable Version


From "Drive" (2002)
(Alan Jackson)

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

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

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

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

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

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

CHORUS (x2)

[Am]And the greatest is [F]love (x3)

[C]Where were you when the world stop turning
[G] On that September [C]day
