Brownielocks and The 3 Bears
Present

Alan Jackson's  hit song dedicated to September 11, 2001
It was a pretty gloomy event. So we presented this page in grey.

 

Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning?

[This is a mp3 file. Loading may be slow on some systems]

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day?
Out 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
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
that lost their dear loved ones?
Did you 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
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 for 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 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 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 watchin'
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns?

Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers?
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)
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.
And the greatest is Love.
And the greatest is Love.

Where were you when the world stopped turnin' that September day?
