                              "Sky Pilot"
            (Burdon / Briggs / Weider / Jenkins / McCulloch)

Intro (acapella):

	He blesses the boys as they stand in line
	They smell of gun grease  and their bayonets they shine
	He's there to help them all that he can
	To make them feel wanted, he's a good holy man

	[band enters]

	 Bb    Eb  Bb 
	Sky... pilot
	 Bb    Eb  Bb 
	Sky... pilot
	Cm                  Bb
	   How high can you fly
	       Cm                              Bb
	You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky

Verse 1:

	    Cm                                  Eb
	He smiles at the young soldiers, tells them it's all right
	    Cm                         Eb
	He knows of their fear in the forthcoming flight
	 Cm                         Eb
	Soon there'll be blood and many will die
	 Cm                       F
	Mothers and fathers back home they will cry

[repeat chorus]

Verse 2:

	He mumbles a prayer and it ends with a smile
	The order is given, they move down the line
	But he stay'll [sic] behind and he'll meditate
	But it won't stop the bleeding or ease the hate

Verse 3:

	And the young men move out into the battle zone
	He feels good, with God you're never alone
	He feels so tired and he lays on his bed
	Hopes the men will find courage in the words that he said

[repeat chorus]

Verse 4:

	You're soldiers of God, you must understand
	The fate of your country is in your young hands
	May God give you strength, do your job real well
	If it all was worth it, only time it will tell

Verse 5:

	In the morning they returned  with tears in their eyes
	The stench of death drifts up to the skies
	A young soldier so ill  looks at the Sky Pilot
	Remembers the words, "Thou shalt not kill"

[repeat chorus, 2X]

Coda [repeat to fade]:

	        Cm            Eb               Bb
	You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky
