BOB DYLAN lyrics : "With God On Our Side"


Oh my name it is nothin'
My age it means less

The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I's taught and brought up there

The laws to abide
And the land that I live in
Has God on its side.


Oh the history books tell it
They tell it so well

The cavalries charged
The Indians fell
The cavalries charged

The Indians died
Oh the country was young
With God on its side.


The Spanish-American
War had its day

And the Civil War too
Was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes

I's made to memorize
With guns on their hands
And God on their side.


The First World War, boys
It came and it went

The reason for fighting
I never did get
But I learned to accept it

Accept it with pride
For you don't count the dead
When God's on your side.


When the Second World War
Came to an end

We forgave the Germans
And then we were friends
Though they murdered six million

In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.


I've learned to hate Russians
All through my whole life

If another war comes
It's them we must fight
To hate them and fear them

To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.


But now we got weapons
Of the chemical dust

If fire them we're forced to
Then fire them we must
One push of the button

And a shot the world wide
And you never ask questions
When God's on your side.


In a many dark hour
I've been thinkin' about this

That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you

You'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.


So now as I'm leavin'
I'm weary as Hell

The confusion I'm feelin'
Ain't no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God's on our side

He'll stop the next war.
