INTRO: C  C/B  Am  D  G  D


     C           D             G   G/F#  Em
He's five feet two, and he's six feet four,
    C          D                G  (strum D string 2th fret and opened)
He fights with missiles and with spears. 
       C            D              G   G/F#  Em
He is all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen.
         C                Am      D
Been a soldier for thousand years.



        C           D         G   G/F#    Em
He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain, 
  C               D             G
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew. 
       C                  D            G       G/F#       Em
And he knows, he shouldn't kill, and he knows he always will.
         C                    Am        D
Kill for me my friend and and me for you.



          C            D            G      G/F#     Em
And he's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France.
      C               D   G
He's fighting for the U.S.A. 
         C                D                   G      G/F#    Em
And he's fighting for the Russians, and he's fighting for Japan,
        C               Am               D
And he thinks we put an end to war this way.



         C               D            G        G/F#      Em
And he's fighting for democracy, he's fighting for the Reds.
   C                  D         G
He says it's for the peace of all.
         C               D             G         G/F#       Em 
He's the one who must decide, who's to live and who's to die,
        C             Am              D
And he never sees the writing on the wall.



        C                  D                 G      G/F#    Em
But without him, how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau,
        C           D                 G
Without him Caesar would have stood alone.
          C                D         G      G/F#     Em
He's the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war,
        C                  Am             D
and without him all this killing can't go on. 
 

  
          C             D            G     G/F#     Em
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           G/F#   Em
And brothers, can't you see, 
         C                           D
This is not the way we put an end to war.
