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

[Verse]
C
Where were you when the world stopped turning,
G
On that September day?
C
Out 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 site of that black smoke
F                            C
Rising up 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 in pride
         C
For the Red, White, and Blue
        F
And the hero?s who died
      C
just doing what they do,
         F                                 C
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
    Am                            F
And look at your self and what really matters?

[Chorus]
F
I?m just a singer of
 C
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
But I know Jesus
         C
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
But the greatest is love.

[Verse]
Where were you when the world stopped turning
On that September day?
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Or driving down some cold interstate?
Did you feel guilty cause you?re a survivor
In a crowded room do you feel alone?
Did you call up your mother
And tell you love her,
Or did you dust off that Bible at home?

Did you open you eyes and hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep?
Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages
And speak to some stranger on the street?
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you?re watching
And turn on I Love Lucy reruns?

[Bridge] (sorta)
         F                      C
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
F
Stand inline to give your own blood?
F
Did you just stay home
          C
And cling tight to your family,
      Am                       F
Thank God you have somebody to love.

[Chorus]
 G                  F
And the greatest is Love
G                   F
And the greatest is Love
G                   C
And the greatest is love
