Don't know if anyone has come across this one yet from the Folk World website, but this article is about songs written about 9/11, including links to complete lyrics, MP3s, etc. It is some pretty impressive collecting!

M.A.S.S. F.I.L.C. put out a memorial songbook in December, called _September 11, 2001_ with 30 songs (words & music) by various hands. Edited with an introduction by Gary McGath.

I had pneumonia and was in the emergency room the day after the buildings fell, watching endless news footage on the wall mounted TV for about seven hours straight with my ass hangin' outta one of those gowns. I went home and bein' somewhat delirious and hacking, this one came out of me.... Nine-One-One. Pretty badly recorded but that's what I do. Windows Media will open it and it's not stored in a advert/popup site. I'd say "enjoy", but I can't say that.

They are pretty garbled between the crude setup I use and the goop in my lungs then. Here are the words to the thing..

O...Nine One One....

Jetplanes..fallin' out..of the sky
People..fallin' out of the sky..

Nine One One...
Osama's out there grinnin' in our face
What made him think he had to
Take us to this place?
O Lord won't you
Hear us when we moan?
Nine One One.

Nine One One...

Hear our orphaned children
When they cry..
Why did all those
People have to die?
What did we do that
Was so wrong?

Oh Lord...
Nine One One

No "Engine 33" (InOBU) in there. I've yet to hear a better song out of September 11.

Toby Keith has a new song out about 9/11. Some think it is controversial, but I like it.

Subject: Lyr Add: MARLYN'S SONG
From: Suffet
Date: 14 Jul 03 - 07:35 AM

Greetings:

I had known Marlyn Carmen Garcia -- first name pronounced the same as "Marlene" -- a few years earlier. "Marlyn" is the correct spelling, not "Marilyn" or "Marlene." You can find a picture of her at:

MARLYN'S SONG

Music: Come All Ye Tramps and Hawkers (traditional Scottish ballad)
New words by Stephen L. Suffet © 2003

My name's Marlyn Garcia and
I come from New York town,
I was working on the hundredth floor
When the walls came tumbling down;
I died amid the steel and glass,
Amid the smoke and flame,
But your guns and bombs and bullets bring
Dishonor to my name.

In school I learned of Gandhi and
Of Cesar Chavez, too,
I learned of Martin Luther King,
And thought their words rang true;
In church I learned of Jesus Christ,
And the Sermon on the Mount,
And now I'm asking all of you:
Do their words even count?

I was only twenty when I died
That bright September day,
I'll be twenty for eternity,
For eternity I'll say:
Mourn not the dead,
For they are gone,
To the wind or to the grave,
But mourn instead the living whose
Lives you still can save.

I seek no vengeance for the wrong,
That was done to me,
I seek no retribution and
I only ask of thee,
To work for justice and for peace,
And some day you shall find,
An eye for an eye can only leave,
Everybody blind.

My name's Marlyn Garcia and
I come from New York town,
I was working on the hundredth floor
When the walls came tumbling down;
I died amid the steel and glass,
Amid the smoke and flame,
But your guns and bombs and bullets bring
Dishonor to my name.

Mc Grath - You're absolutely right, "Engine 33" is one of the best songs. But there is another one by Les Barker which I think is as good as InOBU's from another point of view. Unfortunately it isn't in the web anymore.
