    "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 can never, never, never
    Reach the sky"

    Sky Pilot - Eric Burdon & the Animals

    Weapon of Prayer - The Louvin Brothers (1962)

    A theme album on military/war (Charlie Louvin was in the army at the end of WW2 and was recalled for the Korean war). I'll list the songs together here since they're all on the same album:

    The Weapon of Prayer
    There's a Grave in the Wave of the Ocean
    At Mail Call Today
    I Died For The Red, White and Blue
    A Soldier's Last Letter
    There's a Star-Spangled Banner Waving
    The Great Atomic Power
    A Seaman's Girl
    From Mother's Arms to Korea
    Robe of White
    Searching For a Soldier's Grave
    Mother, I Thank You For The Bible You Gave

    These songs are not sugar coated - for example, the young man in "From Mother's Arms to Korea" is killed on his first day on the front line, leaving a diary that his buddy finishes with "from a foxhole to a mansion on high" before it's sent home.

    The Great Atomic Power is one of their best-remembered songs today, a real fire and brimstone number about the fear of nuclear war. The version on this album was a remake, I prefer the original single version from 1952 (made just after Charlie's return from Korea):

    The melody and the first three verses were written by Pete Seeger in 1955

    ¨Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Long time ago
    Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Gone to graveyards every one
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?´´
