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

He smiles at the young soldiers
Tells them its all right
He knows of their fear in the forthcoming fight
Soon there'll be blood and many will die
Mothers and fathers back home they will cry
Sky pilot.....sky pilot
How high can you fly
You'll 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 he's still behind and he'll meditate
But it won't stop the bleeding or ease the hate

As the young men move out into the battle zone
He feels good, with God you're 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
You'll never, never, never reach the sky

You're 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 ill 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

Everybody, listen to me,
And return me, my ship.
I知 your captain, I知 your captain,
Although I知 feeling mighty sick.

I致e been lost now, days uncounted,
And its months since I致e seen home.
Can you hear me, can you hear me,
Or am I all alone.

If you return me, to my home port,
I will kiss you mother earth.
Take me back now, take me back now,
To the port of my birth.

Am I in my cabin dreaming, or are you really scheming,
To take my ship away from me?

You壇 better think about it, I just cant live without it.
So, please don稚 take my ship from me.
Yeah, yeah, yeah ...

I can feel the hand, of a stranger,
And its tightening, around my throat.
Heaven help me, heaven help me,
Take this stranger from my boat.

I知 your captain, I知 your captain,
Although I知 feeling mighty sick.
Everybody, listen to me,
And return me, my ship.

I知 your captain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I知 your captain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I知 your captain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
I知 your captain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

I知 getting closer to my home ...
I知 getting closer to my home ...
I知 getting closer to my home ...
I知 getting closer to my home ...
Ohhhh ...

I知 getting closer to my home ...
I知 getting closer to my home ...
I知 getting closer to my home ...
I知 getting closer to my home ...
Repeated to fade

Mark Farner wanted to write a song about God for his fans and this is it

 


From the "White Album"

It's been a long, long long time,
How could I ever have lost you
When I loved you.

It took a long, long long time
Now I'm so happy I found you
How I love you

So many tears I was searching,
So many tears I was wasting, oh. Oh--

Now I can see you, be you
How can I ever misplace you
How I want you
Oh I love you
You know that I need you.
Ooh I love you.

Words and music by George Harrison
