They must have seen it coming
When they turned to face the fire.
They sent us down to safety,
Then they kept on climbing higher.
. . .
Now every time I try to sleep
I’m haunted by the sound
Of firemen pounding up the stairs
While we were running down.

– chorus of Tom Paxton’s The Bravest

Listen to The Bravest.

Tom’s recording of The Bravest in MP3 form is available in an on-line player on Tom’s website. (It’s the second selection from the bottom.)
