    DIfferent people sing it, but it's mostly spoken. It's called "Meet me in the stairwell" The 1st time I ever heard it was 10 ears ago when the tragedy 1st happened. Here is the link.

    A couple of people have done this song, but the best version is by Alan Jackson. It's called "Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning". Is that it? Here's the lyrics:

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

    Out in the yard with your wife and children

    Working on some stage in LA

    Did you stand there in shock at the site of

    That black smoke rising against that blue sky

    Did you shout out in anger

    In fear for your neighbor

    Or did you just sit down and cry

    Did you weep for the children

    Who lost their dear loved ones

    And pray for the ones who don't know

    Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble

    And sob for the ones left below

    Did you burst out in pride

    For the red white and blue

    The heroes who died just doing what they do

    Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer

    And look at yourself to what really matters

    I'm just a singer of simple songs

    I'm not a real political man

    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you

    The difference in Iraq and Iran

    But I know Jesus and I talk to God

    And I remember this from when I was young

    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us

    And the greatest is love

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

    Teaching a class full of innocent children

    Driving down some cold interstate

    Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor

    In a crowded room did you feel alone

    Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her

    Did you dust off that bible at home

    Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened

    Close your eyes and not go to sleep

    Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages

    Speak with some stranger on the street

    Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow

    Go out and buy you a gun

    Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watching

    And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns

    Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger

    Stand in line and give your own blood

    Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family

    Thank God you had somebody to love

    I'm just a singer of simple songs

    I'm not a real political man

    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you

    The difference in Iraq and Iran

    But I know Jesus and I talk to God

    And I remember this from when I was young

    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us

    And the greatest is love

    I'm just a singer of simple songs

    I'm not a real political man

    I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you

    The difference in Iraq and Iran

    But I know Jesus and I talk to God

    And I remember this from when I was young

    Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us

    And the greatest is love

    The greatest is love

    The greatest is love

    Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

    "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" - Toby Keith

    "Toby Keith - Unleashed"

    Toby Keith got a lot of grief over writing this song, and talking about "putting a boot in your ***, it's the American way." It was written after the 9-11 incident, and helps us remember that there are men dying so we can sleep at peace each night. The music starts soft and acoustic, but builds to a powerful guitar heavy chorus.
