F#               
Where were you when the sky cracked open 
B/F#
Waiting for shelter and barely coping

Thinking you could ride the storm out 
A/F#               B/F#   
Hoping it would be all right

Where were you when they gave the warning

Hundred-fifty mile winds by morning 
F#                                   A/F#      B/F#
Category four making landfall in the wild gray light

Where were you when you understood

However decent, however good 
                         B
However hard some people try 
                 D
They only barely make it by

They’re born and live their entire lives

F#
Where were you when you heard the stranded 
B/F#
The injured and the empty-handed 
F#
Running out of food and water at the Superdome 
F#
The newborn and the elderly 
B/F#
Exposed to even more misery 
F#
While those in charge of rescue waited for the Guard to come 

F#
And those who left the Convention Center 
B/F#
Were stopped on the bridge when they tried to enter 
F#
The safety of the Westbank and higher ground
(3:17)
F#
And when the Guard finally did arrive 
B/F#               D/F#
And got to work on about day five 
F#                                D/F#         E/F#
Mainly they were used to keep the looting down

Where were you when you realized

However strong, however wise 
A/C#                       B
However true our leaders appear to be

However hard this country strives 
A/C#                    B
When property is valued more than lives 
D/F#               E/F#
How strong will we ever really be 
D/F#               E/F#
How strong will we ever really be 
D/F#            E/F#
