NewIssue
voicing: TTBB | catalog number: SBMP 1445 | price: $2.05
accompaniment: a cappella/trpt., chime


This composition is both dramatic and profound. It offers a unique salute to firefighters via a poignant text, and music that is memorable. The initial intoning of a chime, and a short trumpet refrain, add color to the bold and sometimes sensitive singing of the men.

We fight to keep our country green
In lands we know and parts unseen
We fight a foe we do not fear
We carry on when flames are near.

We carry saw, we carry spade
To save the lands the Creator made
We travel light, we travel far
To quench the flames both first and last.

My brothers all have hearts of stone
We fight together but not alone
In canyons deep and mountains tall
We fight the flames, we give our all.

We slay the flames, we slay the fire
We do not tarry, we do not tire
We breathe the ash and soot and smoke
Our spirit's strong, we canít be broke
Our spirit's strong, we canít be broke.

My comrades all, sad news to tell
We lost some Brothers in the burning hell
My eyes do sting as I try to weep
I pray their souls the Creator keep.

Please tell my mother and tell my wife
I chose this duty, chose this life
My spiritís strong as my body cease
My soulís unfettered, my soulís at peace
My soulís unfettered, my soulís at peace.

We fight to keep our country green
In lands we know and parts unseen
We fight a foe we do not fear
We carry on when flames are near
We carry on when flames are near.

Vijay Singh
