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.

Some would differ with me on the Capo placement...
I have a bad ear for such things. I'm fairly sure that the 
chords are accurate however, comments on the Capo position 
are appreciated! 

Strum on brethren!

The version I have starts with E, F#, ...
However, I prefer Capo 2 and D, E, ... since this rends it easier playable.
