[Intro]

C

[Verse]

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

        C
Did you weep for the children, they lost their dear loved ones,
    G                           C
And pray for the ones who don't know?
          C
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
    G                       C
And sob for the ones left below?
        F
Did you burst out with pride
         C
For the Red, White, and Blue
        F
And the heroes who died
      C
just doing what they do?
        F                     C
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer,
    Am                    F                     G
And look at your self and what really matters?

[Chorus]

F                    C
I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a
F              C
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.
    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
G                       F         G
    And the greatest is love.

[Verse 2]

C
    Where were you when the world stopped turning
G                   C
  On that September day?
C
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
Did you call up your mother
    C
And tell you loved her?
        Am                     F          G
Did you dust off that Bible at home?

        C
Did you open you eyes and hope it never happened
G                             C
Close your eyes and not go to sleep?
        C
Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages
    G                             C
And 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 watching
    Am                    F        
And turn on I Love Lucy reruns?

[Bridge]

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

[Chorus] (x2)

F                    C
I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a
F              C
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.
    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
G                       F         
    And the greatest is love.

F                    C
I'm just a singer of simple songs I'm not a
F              C
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.
    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
G                       F        
    And the greatest is love.
        G           F
And the greatest is Love
        G           F
And the greatest is Love
C                                                    G
    Where were you when the world stopped turning,
                    C
On that September day?
