But without him how could Hitler have condemned him at Dachau 
F                  G                C 
Without him Caesar would have stood alone 
         F                 G           C             Am 
He's the one who gives his body as the weapon of the war 
    F                                     Dm  G 
And without him all this killing can't go on 
              F           G           C            Am 
Yes He's the universal soldier and he really is to blame 
        F                G           C 
But his orders come from far away no more 
               F               G          C              Am 
They come from him and you and me and brothers can't you see 
        F                     C      Dm 
This is not the way we put an end to war?
