With God On Our Side

Bob Dylan

          C          F   C   G7
1. Oh, my name it is nothin` 
   G7              C   F
   My age it means less
   C   G7  Dm7 G7 C
   The country I come from
      F             C   G7
   Is called the Midwest
   C   G7     Dm7 G7      C
   I`s taught and brought up there
       F        C   G7
   The laws to abide
   C                    F    C  G7
   And that land that I live in 
   G7             C   F C
   Has God on its side, 

2. 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

3. Oh, 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 in their hands
   And God on their side

4. Oh, the First World War, boys
   It closed out its fate
   The reason for fighting
   I never got straight
   But I learned to accept it
   Accept it with pride
   For you don`t count the dead
   When God`s on your side

5. When the Second World War
   Came to an end
   We forgave the Germans
   And we were friends
   Though they murdered six million
   In the ovens they fried
   The Germans now too
   Have God on their side

6. I`ve learned to hate Russians
   All through my whole life
   If another war starts
   It`s them we must fight
   To hate them and fear them
   To run and to hide
   And accept it all bravelly
   With God on my side

7. But now we got weapons
   Of the chemical dust
   If fire them we`re forced to
   Then fire them we must
   One push on the button
   And a shot the world wide
   And you never ask questions
   When God`s on your side

8. 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

9. So now 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.
