Sky Pilot

  		Intro (acapella): 
 
	He blesses the boys as they stand in line 
	They smell of gun grease  and their bayonets they shine 
	He's there to help them all that he can 
	To make them feel wanted, he's a good holy man 
 
	{band enters} 
 

	(man) 
 
Chorus: 
 
	 Bb    Eb  Bb  
	Sky... pilot 
	 Bb    Eb  Bb  
	Sky... pilot 
	Cm                  Bb 
	   How high can you fly 
	       Cm                              Bb 
	You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky 
 
Verse 1: 
 
	    Cm                                  Eb 
	He smiles at the young soldiers, tells them it's all right 
	    Cm                         Eb 
	He knows of their fear in the forthcoming flight 
	 Cm                         Eb 
	Soon there'll be blood and many will die 
	 Cm                       F 
	Mothers and fathers back home they will cry 
 
{repeat Chorus} 
 
Verse 2: 
 
	He mumbles a prayer and it ends with a smile 
	The order is given, they move down the line 
	But he stay'll {sic} behind and he'll meditate 
	But it won't stop the bleeding or ease the hate 
 
Verse 3: 
 
	And the young men move out into the battle zone 
	He feels good, with God you're never alone 
	He feels so tired and he lays on his bed 
	Hopes the men will find courage in the words that he said 
 
{repeat Chorus}

Verse 4: 
 
	You're soldiers of God, you must understand 
	The fate of your country is in your young hands 
	May God give you strength, do your job real well 
	If it all was worth it, only time it will tell 
 
Verse 5: 
 
	In the morning they returned  with tears in their eyes 
	The stench of death drifts up to the skies 
	A young soldier so ill  looks at the Sky Pilot 
	Remembers the words, "Thou shalt not kill" 
 
{repeat Chorus, 2X} 
 
Coda {repeat to fade}: 
 
	        Cm            Eb               Bb 
	You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky
