Firefighter Tributes
9-1-1 sent everyone they could find
The firemen and police, EMS and people in the streets
Were trying to help everyone

Cause that’s what firemen do. It’s in their souls
They wouldn’t change a thing even if they could
It’s in their hearts and minds and they’ll become one
They’ll count on each other to get their job done
THAT’S WHAT FIREMEN DO
Lyrics and Music by Don Mathews
CD ' Tributes to Our Unsung Heroes'
I heard about all the heroes in New York City
How they all died so tragically
I didn’t understand how someone could be so cruel
I watched it on TV well my heart was breaking in two
As the buildings were falling one by one
And with tears in my eyes I prayed life would be found
But I knew in my heart all those heroes were all gone
A neighbor had taken ill, she needed help right away
The firemen all helped to save her life
That’s when I realized there’s a hero on every corner
You can see them in their car
With the light upon the roof
They’ll stop what they’re doing
And come when you need help

Cause that’s what firemen do It’s in their souls
They wouldn’t change a thing even if they could
It’s in their hearts and minds and they’ll become one
They’ll count on each other just to get the job done
