Universal Soldier

Buffy Sainte-Marie

4:4 Key:C

He's [C]five foot-[G]two, and he's [C]six feet-[Am]four
He fights with missiles and wit[G]h spears
He's [C]all of thirty-[G]one, and he's [C]only seven[Am]teen
Been a soldier for a thousand [G]years

He's a [C]Christian, a [G]Hindu, an [C]Atheist, a [Am]Jain,
A Buddhist, and a Muslim, and a [G]Jew
And he [C]knows he shouldn't [G]kill, and he [C]knows he always [Am]will
Kill you for me, my friend, and me for [G]you

And he's [C]fighting for [G]Palestine, he's [C]fighting for [Am]Israel
He's fighting for the [G]USA
And he's [C]fighting for the [G]Russians, and he's [C]fighting for [Am]Iraq
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this [G]way

And he's [C]fighting for [G]Democracy, he's [C]fighting for his [Am]soil
He says: "It's for the peace of [G]all"
He's the [C]one who must [G]decide who's to [C]live and who's to [Am]die
And he never sees the writing on the [G]wall

But with[C]out him how would [G]Hitler have con[C]demned him at Da[Am]chau?
Without him Caesar would have stood a[G]lone
He's the [C]one who gives his [G]body as a [C]weapon of the [Am]war
And without him all this killing can'[G]t go on

[C] [G] [C] [Am] [G] [C] [(2x)]

He's the [C]universal [G]soldier, and he [C]really is to [Am]blame
His orders come from far away no [G]more
They come from [C]here and there, and [G]you and me
And [C]brother, can't you [Am]see
This is not the way we put an end to [G]war...

[C] [G] [C]
