He blesses the boys as they stand in line
The smell of gun grease and the bayonets they shine
HeЪFFFF92s there to help them all that he can
To make them feel wanted heЪFFFF92s a good holy man
Sky pilot.....sky pilot
How high can you fly
YouЪFFFF92ll never, never, never reach the sky

He smiles at the young soldiers
Tells them it's all right
He knows of their fear in the forthcoming fight
Soon thereЪFFFF92ll be blood and many will die
Mothers and fathers back home they will cry
Sky pilot.....sky pilot
How high can you fly
YouЪFFFF92ll 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 heЪFFFF92s still behind and heЪFFFF92ll meditate
But it wonЪFFFF92t stop the bleeding or ease the hate

As the young men move out into the battle zone
He feels good, with God youЪFFFF92re never alone
He feels 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
YouЪFFFF92ll never, never, never reach the sky

YouЪFFFF92re 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 return
With tears in their eyes
The stench of death drifts up to the skies
A soldier so I'll looks at the sky pilot
Remembers the words
"Thou shalt not kill"
Sky pilot.....sky pilot
How high can you fly
You never, never, never reach the sky
