    I just heard this song for the first time on CMT. I got the guitar out and am learning it. It will be a standard at campfires from now on. Its a great song!

    Darryl Worley - Have You Forgotten

    I hear people sayin'. We Don't need this war.
    I say there's some things worth fightin' for.
    What about our freedom, and this piece of ground?
    We didn't get to keep 'em by backin' down.
    They say we don't realize the mess we're gettin' in
    Before you start preachin' let me ask you this my friend.

    Chorus
    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 goin through a livin hell
    And you say we shouldn't worry bout Bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    You took all the footage off my T.V.
    Said it's too disturbin for you and me
    It'll just breed anger is what the experts say
    If it was up to me I'd show it everyday
    Some say this country just out lookin' for a fight
    Well after 9/11 man I'd have to say right.

    Chorus
    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 goin' through a livin' hell
    And we vow to get the ones behind Bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    I've been there with the soldiers
    Who've gone away to war
    you can bet they remember just what they're fightin' for

    Have you forgotten
    All the people killed
    Yes some went down like heroes
    In that Pennsylvania field
    Have you forgotten
    About our Pentagon
    All the loved ones that we lost
    And 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?!

    Great song---It's been around a few years. That was the first--and I think only--CD I've ever bought.

    Hey BG. Yep cold fingers are a pain. I find a Rum and Coke warms them up a little, or at least gives that illusion. :thumb:
    I get a lot of my tabs from ultimate-guitar.com, and Cowboy Lyrics.com
    I just started listening to country again about 6 months ago. I used to listen to it (Mainly Outlaw Country) but when I was younger, but Achy Breaky Heart made me switch back to Rock. :rolleyes:
    But I love the new country out now, and the old country. Just didnt care for the way country went in the late 80's, early 90's.
    Satellite Radio has introduced me to lots of good music. I pretty much have the Sirius radio on New Country, or Outlaw Country all the time these days.

    Gotta love YouTube for learning songs. That guy from Sugarland and Little Big Town taught me to use a Capo! :biggrin: I had never used one before.
