Capo 1

GI may never march in the infantry, DRide in the cavalry, GShoot the artillery.
GI may never Emfly o’er the enemy, But CI’m in the DLord’s ar-Gmy. (yes, sir!)
GI’m in the CLord’s ar-Gmy, (yes, sir!) I’m in the DLord’s ar-Gmy, (yes, sir!)
GI may never march in the infantry, DRide in the Calvary, GShoot the artillery.
GI may never Emfly o’er the enemy, But CI’m in the DLord’s ar-Gmy. (yes, sir!)
Mexico
I may never take a trip to Mexico, Ride a donkey oh so slow, eat a cheesy taco,
I may never wear a big sombrero, but I’m in the lords army (Si senor!)
I’m in the lords army (Si senor!) I’m in the lords army (Si senor!)
I may never take a trip to Mexico, Ride a donkey oh so slow, eat a cheesy taco,
I may never wear a big sombrero, but I’m in the lords army (Si senor!)
Africa
I may never in Africa abide, Be a Safari guide, Go on an elephant ride,
I may never shoot me a Rhino Hide, But I’m in the lords army! (Pound Chest)
I’m in the lords army! (Pound Chest) I’m in the lords army! (Pound Chest)
I may never in Africa abide, Be a Safari guide, Go on an elephant ride,
I may never shoot me a Rhino Hide, But I’m in the lords army! (Pound Chest)
Space
I may never blast into outer space, Shoot a laser any place, Win in a rocket race.
I may never walk on the moon in space But I’m in the Lord’s Army! (Roger, sir!)
I’m in the Lord’s Army! (Roger, sir!) I’m in the Lord’s Army! (Roger, sir!)
I may never blast into outer space, Shoot a laser any place, Win in a rocket race.
I may never walk on the moon in space But I’m in the Lord’s Army! (Roger, sir!)
Pirates
I may never have a black patch on my eye, and a parrot by my side, with a peg leg
walk on by, I may never bury treasure far and wide but I’m in the Lord’s Army (aarg matey!)
I’m in the Lord’s Army (aarg matey!) I’m in the Lord’s Army (aarg matey!)
I may never have a black patch on my eye, and a parrot by my side, with a peg leg
walk on by, I may never bury treasure far and wide but I’m in the Lord’s Army (aarg matey!)
Australia
I may never be called an Aussie, See a koala in a tree, Jump like a wallaby.
I may never see a croc, oh woe is me, But I’m in the Lord’s army. (G’day, Mate!)
I’m in the Lord’s army. (G’day, Mate!) I’m in the Lord’s army. (G’day, Mate!)
I may never be called an Aussie, See a koala in a tree, Jump like a wallaby.
I may never see a croc, oh woe is me, But I’m in the Lord’s army. (G’day, Mate!)

    Thanks for an easy to use site that has it all right in front of me! It’s great! I’d love to see you add more songs as I am always looking for great resources for childrens christian songs.

    I love having the guitar chords available on each page, but I think it is important to note that this song needs to be played with a capo 1 (or transposed up a half-step, but that makes some really inconvenient chording). When the guitar chords are toggled, it’d be fantastic if a capo indication would also show up on those songs where it is necessary.

    Other than that, I’m loving the site. I’m working on recording all the great songs from my Sunday School memories so the kids at my church can enjoy them all the time – let’s face it, most of the more “modern” songs are pretty ridiculous. As with almost everything nowadays, they don’t make them like they used to!

    I really appreciate this resource, and I’m not trying to criticise. Just hoping my input can help make a great thing even greater.

    Praise the Lord!

    Thanks for the input! I just started using a capo (which I really love using btw) so it’s difficult to remember what frets I put it on for what songs. I’ll mark this one as a fret #1 or whatever the proper notation would be.

    You’re recording eh? Send me some clips and I’ll replace my awkward singing.

    Love the site! I am looking for a song I had on a record album back in the early 60′s. It’s an ABC song. The words go like this, if I can remember correctly: “A B C D E F G, Jesus died for you and me. H I J K L M N, Jesus died for sinful men, Amen! O P Q R S T U, I believe God’s word is true, U V W, God has promised you, X Y Z, a home eternally” I saw a song posted on here that was on the same album, again, if I am remembering correctly. It’s the “I’m inright, upright,outright, downright, happy all the time” I had forgotten about that song so I was happy to find it! Thanks and God Bless you!

    Teaching myself the guitar and came across your site. Loving it!! A lot of songs I was hoping to find were here. @Mary – I know the song you are talking about and I might have the music/chords for it as its a chorus we sing with Child Evangelism Fellowship. You could try there or if not I could get it for you if you haven’t already got it. I know I have it on a CD from CEF with backing music.

    Blessings,
