The Bravest

	  		

Verse 1:

G C G The first plane hit the other tower, right after I came in D It left a fiery, gaping hole where offices had been C G C G We stood and watched in horror, as we saw the first ones fall C G A7 D Then someone yelled, "Get out, get out, they're trying to kill us all"

Verse 2:

G C G I grabbed the pictures from my desk and joined the flight for life D With every step I called the names of my children and my wife C G C G And then we heard them coming up, from several floors below C G A7 D A crowd of firefighters with their heavy gear in tow
tabchorus
C G C G Now every time I try to sleep, I'm haunted by the sound D G D Of firemen pounding up the stairs, while we were running down

Verse 3:

G C G And when we met them on the stairs, they said we were too slow D "Get out, get out", they yelled at us, "The whole thing's gonna go" C G C G They didn't have to tell us twice, we'd seen the world on fire C G A7 D We kept on running down the stairs, while they kept climbing higher

C G C G Now every time I try to sleep, I'm haunted by the sound D G D Of firemen pounding up the stairs, while we were running down

Verse 4:

G C G Thank God, we made it to the street, we ran through ash and smoke D I didn't know which way to run, I thought that I would choke C G C G A fireman took me by the arm and he pointed me uptown C G A7 D And, "Christ", I heard him whisper, as the tower came roaring down

Verse 5:

G C G So now I go to funerals for men I never knew D The pipers play 'Amazing Grace' as the coffins come in view C G C G They must have seen it coming when they turned to face the fire C G A7 D They sent us down to safety, then they kept on climbing higher
tabchorus
C G C G Now every time I try to sleep, I'm haunted by the sound D G Of firemen pounding up the stairs, while we were running down D G Of firemen pounding up the stairs, while we were running down
