THE PILOT


F Am C Em
F Am C Em
F Am C C G G

C
It was early spring above Lyon
Em
The lights like prayers all scattered and thrown
Am
And whipping by your ears
C
To something bigger

C
Past deadly aims from the Krauts' elite
Em
The wife at home with a rosary
Am
A heavenly voice 
C C/B*
A crosshair to a trigger

F Am C Em
Didn't know what he told those stories for
F Am C Em
About the only blind pilot in the second great war
F Am C C G G
And when he reached the end, he'd say "that man was me"
F Am C Em
He claimed that he was guided by 
F Am C Em
A Kamikaze man who never wanted to die
F Am C C G G
So he sought redemption as a ghost in a righteous ear
Am F G C
Can you hear, can you hear, can you hear, it's loud and clear

C

I dare not speak of the hand of God
But he took more fire than a lightning rod
And escaped unscathed
Just readymade for battle

His fate was sealed with medals and fame
But at 4 o'clock lurked a foe untamed
And his comrade spoke
As the engine began to rattle

My friend you fly alone tonight
For I'm being called by a great white light
One that's far too pure for living eyes
But he claimed he saw that light as well
As clear as a gun, and as sharp as a bell
And he crashed real soft in a field north of Bordeaux
Going home, going home, going home, don't send me home

(Inst. Bridge:)
F Am C Em
F Am C Em
F Am C C G G

F Am C Em
F Am C Em
F Am C C G G

He stumbled out with his broken soul
And he broke his leg in a rabbit hole
That snuck up quick
On idle eyes and a heavy heart

They found him there after three long days
A farmer was tending to a bail of hay
And the pilot cried
'Cos he was afraid of the dark
