Intro: A  Gbm  D  E

A
She walks to school 
        Gbm
With her arms crossed
        D
It's just another day
        E
At 10 o clock she hears this screaming
        A
Then finally she sees them
                       E
It's scary how things change
D
And I saw the story on the news
Gbm
I saw the footage from the roof
D               E
I sat down and cried


A
Didn't she call you
Gbm
Didn't she need you bad enough
D
Was there some reason
E
Another way up
A
Did you not write it down
        Gbm
Just one more thing to do 
D
Where were you
E
And didn't she pray too


A               
He kissed his wife good-bye
        Gbm
And took the earliest flight
        D
So he could be home that night
E
To put his kids to sleep
        A
Three men walked and said
                       E
We're here to die for our God
D
Cuz my God died for me
D
I put the magazine down
Gbm
I read his words out loud
D               E
I sat down and cried


A
Didn't he call you
Gbm
Didn't he need you bad enough
D
Was there some reason
E
Another way up
A
Did you not write it down
        Gbm
Just one more thing to do 
D
Where were you
E
And didn't he pray too


D
The taxis pulled up
Gbm
On the very day
A
They rode 100 floors up
E
Just to come back down
D
They never thought they'd see the day
Gbm
That the tower would be up in flames
A
There was nothing left to say
E
When it all came down


A
Didn't she call you
Gbm
Didn't she need you bad enough
D
Was there some reason
E
Another way up
A
Did you not write it down
        Gbm
Just one more thing to do 
D                 D
Where were you, where were you
E
And didn't they pray too


A
I walk to school
Gbm
And I wear a cross
D
I'm counting
E
Every day

  1. I love this song, but I’m pretty sure that that line in the chorus is, ‘I’m not aware of’, rather than, ‘Another way up’.

  2. This is a really really sweet song about 9/11
