11 SEPTEMBER 2005: HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN?





HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN?

By

Darryl Worley and Wynn Varble

I hear people saying we don’t need this war.
I say there’s some things worth fighting for.
What about our freedom and this piece of ground?
We didn’t get to keep ‘em by backing down.
They say we don’t realize the mess we’re getting in.
Before you start preaching,
Let me ask you this my friend.

Have you forgotten how it felt that day,
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside,
Going through a living hell.
And, you say you shouldn’t worry ‘bout Bin Laden.
Have you forgotten?

They took all the footage off my T.V.
Said it’s too disturbing for you and me.
It’ll just breed anger, that’s what the experts say.
If it was up to me, I’d show it every day.
Some say this country’s just out looking for a fight.
After 9/11, man, I’d have to say that’s right.

Have you forgotten how it felt that day,
To see your homeland under fire
And her people blown away?
Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
We had neighbors still inside,
Going through a living hell.
And, you say you shouldn’t worry ‘bout Bin Laden.
Have you forgotten?

I’ve been there with the soldiers,
Who’ve gone away to war,
And you can bet that they remember
Just what they’re fighting for.

Have you forgotten all the people killed?
Some went down like heroes in that Pennsylvania field.
Have you forgotten about our Pentagon?
All the loved ones that we lost,
And all those left to carry on.
Don’t you tell me not to worry ‘bout Bin Laden.
Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?

Have you forgotten?

    For me, country music is both some of the best and some of the worst music being made today. It just depends on the particular piece.

    This is a great one. I always get emotional when I hear it.

    With few exceptions, country music and its primary audience seem to have always adopted a "conservative" stance. "Conservatism" has some classic problems, but these problems (trying to bring Christianity, in some measure, into government, the illegality of drugs, abortion, prostitution, etc., to mention a few) but these problems put relatively little fear into me.

    The Left, on the other hand, scares the hell out of me.

    Once again, a wonderful song.
