Not a dry eye was seen
At the funeral of the brave
At the funeral of the man
Who so many he saved
It's a sombre affair
That those who were there
Were the ones that he saved
On his job, day to day
The folk that were rescued
Came to his wake
As the glasses were raised
For the brave man's sake
And into the burning flames he did go
One last time into the unknown
The flames which he fought brave and courageous
Because this man had a duty to save us.
One last time into the heat
Into the flames which began at his feet
Into the flames that came over his head
And into the flames his soul was led.
Now his journeys began, and the fire hes tamed
As we drink to the brave firefighter
Who's life it claimed.
