Where Were You 9 by Alan Jackson Guitar Chords

[Verse]
D A D
Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day
D
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
A D
Or working on some stage in L.A.
G D
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
G D
Rising against that blue sky
G D
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor
Bm G
Or did you just sit down and cry

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

[Chorus]
G D
I’m just a singer of simple songs
G D
I’m not a real political man
G D
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I could
Bm G
Tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran
G D
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
G D
And I remember this from when I was young
G D
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us
Bm G
And the greatest is love

[Verse]
D A D
Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day
D
Teaching a class full of innocent children
A D
Or driving down some cold interstate
G D
Did you feel guilty ’cause you’re a survivor
G D
In a crowded room did you feel alone
G D
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her
Bm G
Did you dust off that bible at home

D
Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened
A D
And you close your eyes and not go to sleep
D
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
A D
Or speak to some stranger on the street
G D
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
G D
Go out and buy you a gun
G D
Did you turn off that violent old movie you’re watchin’
Bm G
And turn on “I Love Lucy” reruns

G D
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
G D
Stand in line and give your own blood
G D
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Bm G
Thank God you had somebody to love

[Chorus]
Bm G
And the greatest is love 3X
D A D
Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day—–
