Where were you when the world stopped turnin'
That September day
Out in the yard with your wife and children
Or workin' on some stage in L.A.
Did you stand there and sob 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 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
and the heros 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

(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 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
