Sky Pilot

Burdon, Briggs, Weider, Jenkins, McCulloch / Eric Burdon & the new Animals

(a capella)
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 
A D A A D A Bm A
Sky - pilot, Sky - pilot! How high can you fly?
Bm A
You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky!
 
Bm D
He smiles at the young soldiers, tells them it's all right
Bm D
He knows of their fear in the forthcoming flight
Bm D
Soon there'll be blood and many will die
Bm E
Mothers and fathers back home they will cry
Sky-pilot, Sky-pilot! How high can you fly? 
You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky! 
 
He mumbles a prayer and it ends with a smile 
The order is given, they move down the line 
But he stay'll behind and he'll meditate 
But it won't stop the bleeding or ease the hate 
 
As 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 
Sky-pilot, Sky-pilot! How high can you fly? 
You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky! 
Interlude (guitar, pipes, strings)
A | D (repeat 4x) | Eb (repeat 4x) |
... / / / / / / / / / / / / / / / /
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 
 
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" 
|: Sky-pilot, Sky-pilot! How high can you fly? 
You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky! :| 
 
Bm D A
You'll never (never) (never) reach the sky...
