Tom Paxton – The Bravest chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
G C GThe first plane hit the other tower, right after I came in
DIt left a fiery, gaping hole where offices had been
C G C GWe stood and watched in horror, as we saw the first ones fall
C G A7 DThen someone yelled, "Get out, get out, they're trying to kill us all"
[Verse 2]
G C GI grabbed the pictures from my desk and joined the flight for life
DWith every step I called the names of my children and my wife
C G C GAnd then we heard them coming up, from several floors below
C G A7 DA crowd of firefighters with their heavy gear in tow
[Chorus]
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 GAnd 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 GThey didn't have to tell us twice, we'd seen the world on fire
C G A7 DWe kept on running down the stairs, while they kept climbing higher
[Chorus]
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 GThank God, we made it to the street, we ran through ash and smoke
DI didn't know which way to run, I thought that I would choke
C G C GA fireman took me by the arm and he pointed me uptown
C G A7 DAnd, "Christ", I heard him whisper, as the tower came roaring down
[Verse 5]
G C GSo now I go to funerals for men I never knew
DThe pipers play 'Amazing Grace' as the coffins come in view
C G C GThey must have seen it coming when they turned to face the fire
C G A7 DThey sent us down to safety, then they kept on climbing higher
[Chorus]
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
