      Alan Jackson - Where were you (when the world stopped turning) Música y Letra

      Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
      Were you in the yard with your wife and children
      Or working 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 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 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?
      
      [Chorus:]
      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 on that September day?
      Were you teaching a class full of innocent children
      Or 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 loved her?
      Did you dust off that Bible at home?
      
      Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened
      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
      Or 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
      Did you 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?
      
      [Chorus x2]
      
      And the greatest is love.
      And the greatest is love.
      
      Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?
