Universal Soldier chords (version 1)
Donovan (Buffy Sainte- Marie 1964)

Capo II

D A D F#m E

D

     D         E            A        F#m
He's five foot two and he's six feet four
   D           E                 A
He fights with missiles and with spears
     D             E            A         F#m
He's all of thirty-one and he's only seventeen
            Bm            D        E
He's been a soldier for a thousand years
       D           E         A          F#m
He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain,
  D              E             A
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew
       D                  E
And he knows he shouldn't kill
       A               F#m
And he knows he always will
             Bm                D      E
Kill you for me, my friend and me for you

         D            E            A            F#m
And he's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France
     D                E   A A7
He's fighting for the U.S.A.
     D                E                 A              F#m
He's fighting for the Russians and he's fighting for Japan
       Bm                  D               E
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way
         D              E             A                F#m
And he's fighting for democracy, he's fighting for the reds
   D                 E        A  A7
He says it's for the peace of all
         D              E             A                 F#m
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
       Bm             D              E
And he never sees the writing on the wall

        D                 E              A               F#m
But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau
    D              E                 A  A7
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
         D                 E         A             F#m
He's the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war
        Bm               D                E
And without him all this killing can't go on

         D         E              A            F#m
He's the universal soldier and he really is to blame
    D                E           A
His orders come from far away no more
               D                  E 
They come from here and there and you and me
    A                  F#m
And brothers can't you see
        Bm             D              E
This is not the way we put the end to war
