Where Were YouWhere were you when Kennedy died?

Where were you when Kennedy died?
Can you remember when the shot got fired?
I was a kid just six years old.
But I remember, I remember Oswald.

I remember the place,
I remember the time,
I remember something was lost.

Where were you when Elvis left?
The king is dead the radio said.
I was twenty-one and newly wed.
But I remember. The King is dead.

I remember the place,
I remember the time,
I remember something was lost.

Why do I remember,
Death and tragedy?
Why do I remember,
These days so clearly?

Where were you when John got shot?
Shot by a fan, imagine the shock.
I was thirty and hurt, I did love John.
But I remember, Oh God John’s gone.

I remember the place,
I remember the time,
I remember something was lost.

Where were you when Di got killed?
Can you remember, how the world stood still?.
I was forty and learning to fear.
That tragedy strikes year after year.

I remember the place,
I remember the time,
I remember something was lost.

Why do I remember,
Death and tragedy?
Why do I remember,
These days so clearly?
