F Bb Eb Cm

He blesses the boys as they stand in line
They smell of gun grease and their bayonets they shine
Heʼs there to help them all that he can
To make them feel wanted, heʼs a good holy man


Bb Eb Bb
Sky... pilot
Bb Eb Bb
Sky... pilot
Cm Bb
How high can you fly
Cm Bb
Youʼll never (never) (never) reach the sky

Cm Eb
He smiles at the young soldiers, tells them itʼs all right
Cm Eb
He knows of their fear in the forthcoming flight
Cm Eb
Soon thereʼll be blood and many will die
Cm F
Mothers and fathers back home they will cry


He mumbles a prayer and it ends with a smile
The order is given, they move down the line
But he stayʼll [sic] behind and heʼll meditate
But it wonʼt stop the bleeding or ease the hate

And the young men move out into the battle zone
He feels good, with God youʼre never alone
He feels so tired and he lays on his bed
Hopes the men will find courage in the words that he said



Youʼre 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"

Chorus. x2

Cm Eb Bb
Youʼll never (never) (never) reach the sky
