  THE BEATLES - SOLDIER OF LOVE (Buzz Cason and Tony Moon) From
                THE BEATLES LIVE AT THE BBC album.

  --------------------------------------------------------------







  The four-week trial of Pop Go The Beatles had been a 
  success, and the BBC booked another run, a further 11 
  programmes, making 15 in total.
  The Beatles taped their contribution to the fifth 
  edition on this day, to be broadcast in the Light 
  Programme on Tuesday 16 July, between 5:00 and 5:29 
  pm. Rehearsal and recording took place at Maida Vale 
  Studios between 6:30 and 9:30 pm. From the standpoint 
  of musical versatility, no other Beatles session for 
  BBC radio could match this: they began with a cover of 
  Elvis Presley's "That's All Right (Mama)" and followed 
  with their own "There's A Place", Chuck Berry's "Carol", 
  Arthur Alexander's "Soldier Of Love (Lay Down Your Arms)", 
  Carl Perkins' "Lend Me Your Comb" and The Jodimars' 
  "Clarabella". Yet more songs were recorded but not 
  broadcast: The Coasters' "Three Cool Cats", Chuck Berry's 
  "Sweet Little Sixteen" and their own "Ask me why".
  The Beatles' guest act in this edition was Duffy Power with
  The Graham Bond Quartet.





   Lay down your arms (Soldier of love)
   And surrender to me (Sha la, la)
   Lay down your arms (Soldier of love)
   And love me peacefully (Sha la, la) yeah (Sha la la)
   Use your arms for loving me
   Baby, that's the way it's gotta be (Ooh)

   There ain't no reason for you to declare
   War on the one that loves you so
   So forget the other boys because my love is real
   Come off your battlefield

   Lay down your arms (Soldier of love)
   And love me peacefully (Sha la, la)
   Lay down your arms (Soldier of love)
   And love me tenderly (Sha la, la) yeah (Sha la la)
   Use your arms to hold me tight
   Baby, I don't wanna fight no more (Ooh)

   The weapons you're using are hurtin' me bad
   But someday you're gonna see
   That my love for you baby, is the truest you've ever had
   A Soldier of Love, that's hard to be

   Lay down your arms (Soldier of love)
   And love me peacefully (Sha la, la)
   Lay down your arms (Soldier of love)
   And surrender to me (Sha la, la) yeah (Sha la la)
   Use your arms to squeeze and please cos I'm the one that loves you so
   (Yeah, soldier of love) Baby, lay down your arms
   (Yeah, soldier of love) Baby, lay down your arms
   (Yeah, yeah) (fade out)

Yeah, I thought this was a PJ tab when I first saw it haha. Great job, though. Same quality as his.
