good christian soldier  Kris Kristofferson



Keep Picking.
Dan Mooney - Portland, Oregon
Good Christian Soldier
[D]Not so long a[A7]go in Okla[D]homa
The [A]son of an Oakie preacher knelt to [D]pray
[C]He [D7]said [G]Lord I want to be a Christian [D]soldier just like you
And [E7]fight to build a new and better [A7]day.
[D]Now many years and [A7]miles from Okla[D]homa
That [A]same young Oakie boy still kneels to [D]pray [C]
[D7]But [G]he don't pray to be no Christian [D]soldier anymore
He just [E7]prays to make it [A7]thru another [D]day.
[D]Cause [C]Lord [D7]it's [G]hard to be a Christian soldier
[D]when you tote a gun and it [G]hurts to have to watch a grown man [D]cry.
[C]But [D7]were [G]playing cards, [A7]writing home, [D]having lots of fun,
[G]Telling jokes and learnin' how to [D]die.
[D]The things I've come to [A7]know seem so con[D]fusin.
It's [A]getting hard to tell what's wrong from [D]right.
[C]I [D7]can' t [G]separate the winners from the [D]losers anymore
and [E7]I'm thinking off just [A7]giving up the [D]fight.
[D]Cause [C]Lord [D7]it's [G]hard to be a Christian soldier
[D]when you tote a gun and it [G]hurts to have to watch a grown man [D]cry.
[C]But [D7]were [G]playing cards, [A7]writing home, [D]having lots of fun,
[G]Turning on and learnin' how to [D]die.
