INTRO: C  C/B  Am  D  G  D

C D G EmHe'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 EmHe is all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen.
C Am DBeen a soldier for thousand years.
C D G EmHe's a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain,
C D GA Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
C D G EmAnd he knows, he shouldn't kill, and he knows he always will.
C Am DKill for me my friend and and me for you.
C D G EmAnd he's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France.
C D GHe's fighting for the U.S.A.
C D G EmAnd he's fighting for the Russians, and he's fighting for Japan,
C Am DAnd he thinks we put an end to war this way.
C D G EmAnd he's fighting for democracy, he's fighting for the Reds.
C D GHe 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 DAnd he never sees the writing on the wall.
C D G EmBut without him, how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau,
C D GWithout him Caesar would have stood alone.
C D G EmHe's the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war,
C D G Dand without him all this killing can't go on.
C D G EmHe's the universal soldier and he really is to blame,
C D GHis orders come from far away, no more.
C D They come from here and there, and you and me,
G EmAnd brothers, can't you see,
C DThis is not the way we put an end to war.
