"Soldier" is a song by Neil Young from the 1972 soundtrack album, Journey Through the Past. It was the only new track included on the album, and was later released on the 1977 compilation Decade, although it was slightly edited.

The song observes how a soldier's eyes "shine like the sun." In the second verse, Young sings he does not believe Jesus because he "can't deliver right away".
