GOOD CHRISTIAN SOLDIER (Bobby Bare / Billy Joe Shaver) Kris Kristofferson - 1971 Not so long ago in Oklahoma The son of an Okie preacher knelt to pray He said Lord I wanna be a Christian soldier just like you And fight to build a new and better day Now many years and miles from Oklahoma That same young Okie boy still kneels to pray But he don't pray to be no Christian soldier anymore He just prays to make it through another day Cause 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 havin' lots of fun Telling jokes and learning how to die Now the things I've come to know seem so confusin' It's gettin' hard to tell what's wrong from right I can't seperate the winners from the losers anymore And I'm thinking of just giving up the fight Cause 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 ain't we hadn't fun Turning on and learning how to die
