Sky Pilot (Piloto del cielo) – Eric Burdon and the animals

 
Esta canción de Eric Burdon y los animales me gusta mucho y también me trae grandes recuerdos. Este es uno de los discos favoritos de mi amigazo Juan Alberto Reyes y también de mi hermano Marco Tulio.

La canción es un tanto larga y por eso el disco 45 tenía la canción en la cara "A" y continuaba en la cara "B".
Esta canción salió en la segunda epoca del grupo de Los Animales.


Sky Pilot
Eric Burdon & The Animals

1968

He blesses the boys
As they stand in line
The smell of gun grease
And their bayonets, they shine
He's here to help them
All that he can
To make them feel wanted
He's a good holy man

[CHORUS]
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 it's all right
He knows of their fear
In the forthcoming fight
Soon there'll be blood
And many will die
Mother and fathers
Back home, they will cry

[repeat CHORUS]

He mumbles a prayer
And it ends with a smile
The order is given
They move down the line
But he'll stay 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 so tired
And he lays on his bed
Hopes the men will find courage
In the words that he's said

[repeat CHORUS]

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 returned
With tears in their eyes
The stench of death
Drifts up to the skies
A young soldier so ill
Looks at the sky pilot
Remembers the words
Thou shalt not kill

[repeat CHORUS 2x]

You'll never, never
Never reach the sky
You'll never, never
Never reach the sky
You'll never, never
Never reach the sky
