I Was There When It Happened

Song Author Jimmie Davis og Fern Jones Performer: Johnny Cash Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]There are some people [F]who say we cannot [C]tell
Whether we are [G7]saved or whether all is [C]well
They say we only can hope and trust that it is [F]so  
But I was there when it [C]happened and so I [G7]guess I oughta [C]know

Yes I know when He [G7]saved me (saved my soul)
The very moment He [C]forgave me (made me whole)
He took away my heavy [D7]burdens
Lord He gave me peace [G7]within (peace within)
Satan can't make me [C]doubt it (I won't doubt it)
It's real and I'm gonna [F]shout it (I'm gonna shout it)
I was there when it [C]happened and so I [G7]guess I oughta [C]know

I don't care who tells me [F]salvation is not [C]real
Though the world may [G7]argue that we cannot [C]feel
The heavy burdens lifted and the wild sins [F]go  
I was there when it [C]happened and so I [G7]guess I oughta [C]know


There are some people who say we cannot tell
Whether we are saved or whether all is well
They say we only can hope and trust that it is so
But I was there when it happened and so I guess I oughta know

Yes I know when He saved me (saved my soul)
The very moment He forgave me (made me whole)
He took away my heavy burdens
Lord He gave me peace within (peace within)
Satan can't make me doubt it (I won't doubt it)
It's real and I'm gonna shout it (I'm gonna shout it)
I was there when it happened and so I guess I oughta know

I don't care who tells me salvation is not real
Though the world may argue that we cannot feel
The heavy burdens lifted and the wild sins go
I was there when it happened and so I guess I oughta know
