The song was originally written by Buffy Sainte-Marie, a native american
woman, but is mostly associated with Donnovan. Donnovan played the song
in E, but its easier to play and to sing in C as it was originally


C		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		      G
Been a soldier for a thousand years.

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

C			G
And he's fighting for Canada,
C		   Am
He's fighting for France,
      F			C
He's fighting for the USA,
	  F		    G
And he's fighting for the Russians,
	C		Am
And he's fighting for Japan,
	F				    G
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

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

C			   G
But without him,How would Hitler 
	C		Am
have condemned him at Dachau?
    F				     G
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
	  C		    G
He's the one who gives his body
	C	    Am
As a weapon of the war,
	F				  G
And without him all this killing can't go on.

 	C		G	     C		Am
He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
	F			  G
His orders come from far away no more,
	C		G	  C	  Am
They come from here and there and you and me,
      C			Am
And brothers can't you see,
	F				G
This is not the way we put the end to war.
