With God On Our Side - Words


By Bob Dylan

Oh, my name, it ain't 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 that 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 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 was made to memorize 
With guns in 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.

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 learned to hate the 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 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 
You never ask questions when God's on your side.

Through many a dark hour I 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 they fall to the floor 
That if God's on our side, he'll stop the next war.
