Soldiers & Jesus
Written by James Otto & Chris Wallin
Recorded by James Otto
Album: Shake What God Gave Ya (2011)

(No Capo)

Intro.:  6/8|(D)(G/B)| x 2

Well, grand-(D)daddy came home in a (G)B-Fifty-(D)Two
In a pine box covered in red, (A)white, and (G)blue
He was one of the brave and the (A)proud and the (Bm)few
(D)21 guns helped (G)us say good-(D)bye
I stood there in silence tryin' (A)hard not to (G)cry
As the preacher he quoted lines (A)written in (Bm)red
And he (D)folded his bible in a (A)broken voice he (D)said

(Chorus)
There's (G)only two people who's (D)ever died for me
(A)Laid down their lives just so (D)I could be free
They (G)both went through hell bared (D)crosses and shells
And (A)both got back up again (D)after they fell
They (G)never pick a fight, but they're (D)there to (A/C#)pick up the (Bm)pieces
(G)God only knows where we'd (A)be without soldiers and (D)Jesus (D6)

It (D)seems like the news loves to (G)run 'em both (D)down
Whenever we need 'em, they're (A)always a-(G)round
So, don't hand me a parties (A)political (Bm)views
There's (D)left side or right side, and (A)then there's the (D)truth

(Chorus)
There's (G)only two people who's (D)ever died for me
(A)Laid down their lives just so (D)I could be free
They (G)both went through hell bared (D)crosses and shells
And (A)both got back up again (D)after they fell
They (G)never pick a fight, but they're (D)there to (A/C#)pick up the (Bm)pieces
(G)God only knows where we'd (A)be without soldiers and (G)Jesus

Inst.: --- | (G) (C)(B)(A) | (D)  | (D)  |

To (G)me there both heroes for the (A)path that they (Bm)chose
One (D)fights for my life, one (A)fights for my (D)soul

(Chorus)
There's (G)only two people who's (D)ever died for me
(A)Laid down their lives just so (D)I could be free
They (G)both went through hell bared (D)crosses and shells
And (A)both got back up again (D)after they fell
They (G)never pick a fight, but they're (D)there to (A/C#)pick up the (Bm)pieces
(G)God only knows where we'd (A)be without soldiers and (D)Jesus
