Jerry Jeff Walker – Where Was I lyrics

Paul Thorn, Billy Maddox, Anna Lisa Graham

On a black and white tv, in a dark saloon
I was watching Neil Armstrong walking on the moon
And later on I got high and climbed up on the bar
I told everybody there I could fly above the stars

I was in a Dallas disco the night that John Lennon died
And the dj played "Imagine" and everbody cried
I remember a thousand lighters held up in our hands
All we were saying them "Let's give peace a chance"

Where was I when you stopped loving me?
When did I become history?
There's not many things that escape my memory
Tell me where was I when you stopped loving me?

Every 20, 000 years that comet lights up the night
On a blanket we watched it sail across the sky
A moment like that comes it just once in life
It felt like our first time at 11: 35


I remember when I met you, the taste of our first kiss
I remember your goodbye, but would you tell me this?
