I Was There When It Happened 
 
    E                                  A                            E
1) There are some people who say we cannot tell 
2) I donít care who tells me salvation is not real 
 
                            B7                                E        A     E   
1) whether we are saved or whether all is well.
2) though the world may argue that we cannot feel 
 
                                     E             E7           A 
1) They say we only can hope and trust it is so. 
2) the heavy burdens lifted and the wild winds blow 
                                  B7                                                   E          A    E
1) I was there when it happened and so I guess I ougth to know.
2) I was there when it happened so I guess I ought to know.
