Good Christian Soldier  Kris Kristofferson

Good Christian Soldier
[C]Not so long a[G]go, in Okla[C]homa
The [G]son of an Okie preacher knelt to [C]pray[C7]
He said, "[F]Lord I wanna be a Christian [C]soldier just like you
And [D7]fight to build a new and better [G]day"
Now [C]many years and [G]miles from Okla[C]homa
That [G]same young Okie boy still kneels to [C]pray[C7]
But [F]he don't pray to be no Christian [C]soldier anymore
He just prays to make it [G]through another [C]day[C7]
'Cause it's [F]hard to be a [G]Christian [F]sold[F/A]ier [C]when you tote a gun
And it [F]hurts to have to [G]watch a [F]grown [F/A]man [C]cry
But we're [F]playin' cards, [G]writin' home, [C]and [C/B]havin' lots of [Am]fun
[D]Tellin' jokes and learnin' how to [G]die[G7]
[C]You know the [G]things I've come to know seem so [C]confusing
[G]It's gettin' hard to tell what's wrong from [C]right[C7]
I can't [F]separate the winners from the [C]losers anymore
And I'm thinking of just [G]givin' up the [C]fight
It's hard to be a Christian soldier when you tote a gun
And it hurts to have to watch a grown man cry
But we're playin' cards, writin' home, anyway havin' fun
Turnin' on and learnin' how to die
