Johnny Cash - I Was There When It Happened
With His Hot and Blue Guitar (1957)
Original in F, so when played in C: Capo 5
---

C G7 C (stop)


               C      F                   C    C
There are some people   who say we cannot tell
               G7       G7                C    F C (stop)
Whether we are saved or    whether all is well
                     C        C7               F  F
They say we only can hope and trust that it is so
                        C                 G7               C    F C (stop)
But I was there when it happened and so I guess I ought to know


                        G7                 G7
  Yes I know when Jesus saved me (saved my soul)
                        C                C
  The very moment He forgave me (made me whole)
                        D7               D7                G7            (stop)
  He took away my heavy burdens, Lord he gave me peace within (peace within)


                        C                 C
    Satan can't make me doubt it (I won't doubt it)
                            F                   F
    It's real and I'm gonna shout it (I'm gonna shout it)
                        C                 G7               C    F C (stop)
    I was there when it happened and so I guess I ought to know


C G7 C (stop)


                 C        F                  C    C
I don't care who tells me   salvation is not real
                     G7    G7                C    F C (stop)
Though the world may argue    that we cannot feel
                  C      C7                   F  F
The heavy burdens lifted    and the vile sins go
                    C                 G7               C    F C (stop)
I was there when it happened and so I guess I ought to know


                        G7                 G7
  Yes I know when Jesus saved me (saved my soul)
                        C                C
  The very moment He forgave me (made me whole)
                        D7               D7                G7            (stop)
  He took away my heavy burdens, Lord he gave me peace within (peace within)


                        C                 C
    Satan can't make me doubt it (I won't doubt it)
                            F                   F
    It's real and I'm gonna shout it (I'm gonna shout it)
                        C                 G7               C    F C
    I was there when it happened and so I guess I ought to know
