Ballad with no chorus or Verses

Intro C Dm G C Dm G 

     F         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                      Dm    G
He's been a soldier for a thousand years
       F            G          C         Am
He's a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jane
F             G          C
A Buddhist a Baptist and Jew
F                     G            C              Am
He knows he shouldn't kill but he knows he always will 
     F                               Dm  G
kill you my friend for me and me for you
      F           G              C          Am
He's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France
F                     G   C
He's fighting for the U S A
      F                G                 C            Am
He's fighting for the Russians and he's fighting for Japan
       F                                   Dm  G
And he thinks he'll put an end to war that way
         F              G             C               Am
And he's fighting for democracy he's fighting for the reds
    F                G        C
He says it's for the peace of all
    F                  G              C                 Am
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
       F                             Dm    G
And he never sees the writing on the wall
    F                     G                C           Am
But without him how could Hitler have condemned him at Dachau
F                  G                C
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
         F                 G           C             Am
He's the one who gives his body as the weapon of the war
    F                                     Dm  G
And without him all this killing can't go on
              F           G           C            Am
Yes He's the universal soldier and he really is to blame
        F                G           C
But his orders come from far away no more
               F               G          C              Am
They come from him and you and me and brothers can't you see
        F                     C      Dm
This is not the way we put an end to war?

Glen Travis Campbell
