Cover of Donovan's anti-war masterpiece CAPO ON THE 4th Chords: C (x32010) C/B (x20010) Am (x02210) D (xx0232) G (320022) Em (022000) INTRO: C C/B Am D G D C D G Em He's five feet two, and he's six feet four, C D G (strum D string 2th fret and opened) He fights with missiles and with spears. C D G Em He is all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen. C Am D Been a soldier for thousand years. C D G Em He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain, C D G A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew. C D G Em And he knows, he shouldn't kill, and he knows he always will. C Am D Kill for me my friend and and me for you. C D G Em And he's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France. C D G He's fighting for the U.S.A. C D G Em And he's fighting for the Russians, and he's fighting for Japan, C Am D And he thinks we put an end to war this way. C D G Em And he's fighting for democracy, he's fighting for the Reds. C D G He says it's for the peace of all. C D G Em He's the one who must decide, who's to live and who's to die, C Am D And he never sees the writing on the wall. C D G Em But without him, how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau, C D G Without him Caesar would have stood alone. C D G Em He's the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war, C D G D and without him all this killing can't go on. C D G Em He's the universal soldier and he really is to blame, C D G His orders come from far away, no more. C D They come from here and there, and you and me, G Em And brothers, can't you see, C D This is not the way we put an end to war.
