BOB DYLAN - 1970

Self Portrait recording session 4, Columbia Studios, NYC - 3.mar.1970, 3 verses only 

He's a catholic, a hunk(?), an athiest, a jain
A buddhist and a baptist and a jew
And he knows he shouldn't kill
And he knows he always will
Kill for you my friend and me for you

He's five-foot-two and he's six-feet-four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of 31, he's only 17
He's been a soldier for a thousand years

He's fighting for Canada, he's fighting for France
He's fighting for the U.S.A.
He's fighting for the businessmen 
He's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

(?) "hindu" in the original lyrics
