C               G              C       Am
He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,
F               G                 C
He fights with missiles and with spears.
F                  G             C       Am
He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,
        F                     G
Been a soldier for a thousand years.
C                  G         C                 Am
He'a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
F               G              C
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
        F                   G
And he knows he shouldn't kill,
        C               Am
And he knows he always will,
F                                    G
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.
C                       G
And he's fighting for Canada,
C                  Am
He's fighting for France,
      F                 C
He's fighting for the USA,
          F                 G
And he's fighting for the Russians,
        C               Am
And he's fighting for Japan,
        F                                   G
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.
C                       G      
And he's fighting for Democracy,
C                       Am
He's fighting for the Reds,
    F                           G
He says it's for the peace of all.
          F             G
He's the one who must decide,
          C                 Am
Who's to live and who's to die,
       F                              G
And he never sees the writing on the wall.
C                          G
But without him,How would Hitler 
        C               Am
have condemned him at Dachau?
    F                                G
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
          C                 G
He's the one who gives his body
        C           Am
As a weapon of the war,
        F                                 G
And without him all this killing can't go on.
        C               G           C         Am
He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
        F                         G
His orders come from far away no more,
        C               G        C      Am
They come from here and there and you and me,
      C                 Am
And brothers can't you see,
        F                               G
This is not the way we put the end to war.

Hi: I don't think these are the chords Buffy Sainte Marie is using at least for the Yotube video (sound only with a pic) that I listened to. Is she capoed perhaps? When I try to pay along with the Youtube recording, it sounds awful.

Actually, as far as I can tell, first of all, it should have a capo on first fret. The chord progression then becomes:

C - D - G - Em
C - D - G
C - D - G - Em
C - Am - D
