[Verse 1](Acapella)
(N.C.)  (G)              (Em)
In that land, across the sea,
         (G)             (Em)
There's a job, for you and me.
           (G)            (Em)        (D)
Though our presence there, may not be found.
(G)                   (Em)
We must stay standing there,
       (G)              (Em)
On the battle lines and pray.
        (G)        (D)         (G)
We must ne-ver, lay our weapons down.


[Chorus 1](Keyboards & Acoustic Guitar)
G        C            D       G
We don't have to be a soldier in a uniform,
                  Em   D
To be of service, over there.
      G                   Em              G               Em               
While the boys so bravely stand, with the weapons made by hand.(Bas Guitar joins)
       G                 D         G
Let us trust and use the weapon of prayer.


[Instrumental Solo 1](Pedal Steel Guitar & Acoustic Guitar)
G  Em  G  G
G  D   G  G


[Verse 2](Keyboards, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin & Lap Steel Guitar)
G                    Em   
Many thousand’ miles away, 
        G                Em        
Someone shed their blood today.
       G             Em                 D
With a heart so true and brave, they're gone.
     G                 Em
To a war, that's yours and mine, 
       G               Em
Let us join the battle line,
       G                 D       G
With a weapon, that will save our home.


[Chorus 2](Keyboards, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin & Pedal Steel Guitar)
G        C            D       G
We don't have to be a soldier in a uniform,
                  Em   D
To be of service, over there.
          G               Em              G               Em  
While the boys so bravely stand, with the weapons made by hand.
       G                 D         G
Let us trust and use the weapon of prayer.


[Verse 3](Acapella)
G                             Em
And when the planes and tanks and guns, 
          G                 Em
Have done all that they can do.
        G                 Em         D        
And the mighty bombs have rained and failed.
      G                Em
Still the helpful hand above, 
       G              Em               
On the weapon made of love,
    G                D        G
And against him none on earth, prevail.


[Chorus 3](Keyboards, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin & Pedal Steel Guitar)
G        C            D       G
We don't have to be a soldier in a uniform,
                  Em   D
To be of service, over there.
          G               Em              G               Em  
While the boys so bravely stand, with the weapons made by hand.
       G                 D         G
Let us trust and use the weapon of prayer.
