Where Were You 8 by Alan Jackson Guitar Chords

[Verse 1]
B
Where were you when the world stopped turning
Gb B
That September day
B
Out in the yard with your wife and children
Gb B
Working on some stage in L.A.
E
Did you stand there in shock
B
At the sight of that black smoke
E B
Rising against that blue sky
E B
Did you shout out in anger in fear for your neighbor
Abm E Gb
Or did you just sit down and cry

B
Did you weep for the children that lost their dear loved ones
Gb B
Pray for the ones who don’t know
B
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
Gb B
And sob for the ones left below
E B
Did you burst out in pride for the red, white & blue
E B
The heroes who died just doing what they do
E B
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
Abm E
And look at yourself for what really matters

[Chorus]
E B
I’m just a singer of simple songs,
E B
I’m not a real political man

E B
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
Abm E
The difference in Iraq and Iran
E B
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
E B
And I remember this from when I was young
E B Gb
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us
E
And the greatest is love.

[Verse 2]
B
Where were you when the world stopped turning
Gb B
That September day
B
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Gb B
Driving down some cold interstate
E B
Did you feel guilty because you’re a survivor
E B
In a crowded room did you feel alone
E B
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
Abm E Gb
Did you dust off that Bible at home

B
Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
Gb B
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
B
Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages
Gb B
Speak to some stranger on the street
E B
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
E B
Go out and buy you a gun
E B
Did you turn off that violent old movie you’re watching

Abm E
And turn on I Love Lucy reruns

E B
Did you go to a Church and hold hands with some stranger
E B
Stand in line and give your own blood
E B
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Abm E
Thank God you had somebody to love

(Repeat Chorus twice)
E B
I’m just a singer of simple songs,
E B
I’m not a real political man
E B
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
Abm E
The difference in Iraq and Iran
E B
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
E B
And I remember this from when I was young

E B Gb
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us
E
And the greatest is love.

E Gb B Gb
The greatest is love
E Gb B Gb
The greatest is love
B
Where were you when the world stopped turning
Gb B
That September day
