Where were you when the world stopped turning

That September day

Out in the yard

With your wife and children

Workin' on some stage in LA

Did you stand there in shock

At the sight of that black smoke

Rising against that blue sky

Did you shout out in anger

And fear for your neighbor

Or did you just sit down and cry

Did you weep for the children

Who lost their dear loved ones

Or pray for the ones who don't know

Did you rejoice for the people

Who walked from the rubbel

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 could

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 hope it never happened

And you close your eyes and not go to sleep

Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages

Or 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

Did you go to the 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 could

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 could

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

And the greatest is love

And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turning

That September day
