Where Were You Lyrics

Where were you when the world stopped turnin’
That September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or workin’ on some stage in L.A.?
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Risin’ against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry?

…………………………*……………………….

Did you weep for the children, they lost their dear loved ones
Pray for the ones who don’t know?
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below?
Did you burst out with pride for the red, white, and blue
And the heroes who died just doin’ what they do?
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters?

…………………………*……………………….

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN, but I’m not sure I can tell you
The diff’rence in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love

…………………………*……………………….

Where were you when the world stopped turnin’
That September day?
Teachin’ a class full of innocent children
Or drivin’ down some cold interstate?
Did you feel guilty ’cause you’re a survivor?
In a crowded room did you feel alone?
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her?
Did you dust off that Bible at home?

…………………………*……………………….

Did you open your 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 watchin’
And turn on I Love Lucy reruns?
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
Stand in line to give your own blood?
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love?

…………………………*……………………….

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN, but I’m not sure I can tell you
The diff’rence in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love
I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN, but I’m not sure I can tell you
The diff’rence in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith, hope, and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love

…………………………*……………………….

And the greatest is love
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turnin’
On that September day?

Guitar Chords



Where were you when the world stopped turning,

On that September day?

Out in the Yard with your wife and children,

Or working on some stage in L.A.

Did you stand there in shock?

At the site of that black smoke

Rising up against that blue sky

Did you shout out in anger

In fear for your neighbor,

Or did you just sit down and cry?

Did you weep for the children; they lost their dear loved ones,

And pray for the ones who don’t know?

Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble

And sob for the ones left below?

Did you burst out in pride

For the Red, White, and Blue

And the heroes who died

Just doing what they do,

Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer?

And look at yourself and what really matters?


I’m just a singer of

Simple songs I’m not a

Real political man

I watch CNN, But I’m not sure I can tell you

The difference in Iraq and Iran.

But I know Jesus

And I talk to God

And I remember this from when I was young

aith, Hope and Love, are some good things he gave us

But the greatest is love.


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

Stand inline to give your own blood?

Did you just stay home

And cling tight to your family,

Thank God you have somebody to love.


And the greatest is Love

And the greatest is Love

And the greatest is love


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

Stand inline to give your own blood?

Did you just stay home?

And cling tight to your family,

Thank God you have somebody to love.


And the greatest is Love

And the greatest is Love

And the greatest is love
