    When God Made You?!?

    I was checking out E-Bay and found an CD that states that Garth wrote the song on it for The Moffats~

    These brothers, origninally from Canada and now hailing from Nashville make a certain splash with their self-titled CD. From "When God Made You," written for them by Garth Brooks
    I looked around and couldn't find anything except that that credited him with the song, does anyone know for sure??

    I remember hearing something about Garth and the Moffats, but my memory is vague as to whether he wrote a song for them. I think I remember seeing Garth in a picture with the group.

    I found the lyrics here, but there were no credits listed.

    "When God Made You"

    God made the oceans and with a wave of his hand
    He made the mountains, the deserts and the plains
    But I wonder was it in his master plan
    That there'd be earthquakes, floods, and hurricanes
    When I see the peaceful sky, sometimes I wonder
    How could it turn so dark and be so cruel
    This old world is full of imperfections
    But I found one exception to the rule

    When God made you
    He had something else in mind
    When God made you
    He took a little extra time

    When we're surrounded by a world that's slowly sinking
    Your gentle eyes and loving smile make me forget
    Though you're only flesh and blood, I can't help thinking
    If you have a flaw, I haven't found it yet

    When God made you
    He had something else in mind
    When God made you
    He took a little extra time
    When God made you
    He did something so divine
    When God made you
    He took a little extra time

    i found this website that gives credit to garth for writing it. iand i do remember hearing something about garth writing this song for the moffets but it was some time ago. i also think if you look at the lyrics...the words...it sounds like garth's writing style.

    I just remembered you can do a search at the ASCAP site. Pat Alger and Garth Brooks are credited with writing this song - When God Made You.

    I knew you guys could do it!! Thanks Paula~I owe you one! And I agree with you Amanda, the words do have Garth written all over them.

    But you just opened another can of worms after I checked out the ASCAP sight!! Out of the 77 songs that he has wrote or involved with there are a few that I'd never heard of! I'm sure if he tried hard enough he could squeeze them into just ONE more CD for us don't ya think???? Wishful thinkin' I guess!!

    Next question has anyone heard 'When God Made You'?

    I have the Cd (don't ask) . The boys recorded it when they were barely teens so they sound kinda like "The Chipmunks". Kinda silly sounding from kids IMO. I don't know what it is about Canadian boys recording Garth songs. Adam Gregory recorded "Sweet memories" on his last album.

    The boys switched to pop music a few years ago, became kinda popular for the teenyboppers here in Canada and haven't heard much from them since.
