Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning Lyrics, WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE WORLD STOPPED TURNING THAT SEPTEMBER DAY?

Lyrics by Alan Jackson:

“Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

Out in the yard with your wife and children

Working on some stage in LA

Did you stand there in shock at the site of?

That black smoke rising 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?

Who 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

The heroes who died just doing what they do

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

And look at yourself to 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

Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us

And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day?

Teaching a class full of innocent children

Driving 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 the first time in ages?

Speak with 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

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

Stand in line and 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 difference 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 difference 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

The greatest is love

The greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day “
