VERSE 1
********
       E
I feel sorry for the soldier who is shot and stoned in anger
       A                               E
I feel sorry for his wife and child at home
       E
I feel sorry for the bomber who all life and limb dishonors
        A                                E
For the people that he's maimed and left alone


--------------------
CHORUS
*******
         G
The Lord God said, "Love thy neighbor
          A                                  E  G
Though in human life he trades, he's still a man


--------------------
VERSE 2
********
       E
I feel sorry for the children who with open minds are willing
   A                                 E
To fight for ideals aging past their time
       E
I feel sorry for the children who will join the vicious circle
   A                                      E
Of instinct fear bred from their parents' minds


--------------------
CHORUS
*******
         G
The Lord God said, "Love thy neighbor
          A                                  E  
Break the circle, free the hater, call him a friend
                              A       C
Call him a friend, call him a friend

BRIDGE
*******
E                          A
Wake up, wake up, there's a man by your side
       E           G           A    F#7
With a knife and a gun in each hand
E                        A
Wake up, wake up, you're one and the same
     E       G        A      D
It's time to stop and decide
      E                   F#7
Is it love or hate? Is it peace or war
         F            C           C
It's for sure there's no one in between
    E
Politicians point views
            F#7
But they're pointing for you
    F        C         Em
The solution has to be seen
          C               A
Has to be seen, has to be seen

VERSE 3
********
  Em              D
I thought I saw a summer soldier
C             Em
Helmet on his brow
                 D
His silver rifle clutched
            C             Em
Beneath his armour-plated shroud


--------------------
CHORUS
*******
   G       C       G        C
"I fire in hate" , he cried aloud
       G                Em
"To protect myself from defeat
   G           C      G           C
My shield's my cause, my cause is war
         G                  B
And from war I'll make no retreat

VERSE 4
********
  E                D
I dreamt, I saw an angel bright
  C           Em
A halo on his brow
                     D       
His golden sword lay in its sheath
C                  Em
Beneath his silver shroud


--------------------
CHORUS
*******
   G        C      G        C
"I cry thee not" , he cried aloud
             G                           Em
"Though your deeds like spears strike my soul
   G        C        G           C
My shield's my love, my cause is peace
         G                  B
Faith be sure I shall not retreat
