With God On Our Side - Bob Dylan
    Oh, my name it is nothing, my age it means less

    The country I come from is called the Midwest
    I was taught and brought up there, the laws to abide
    And that the land I live in has God on its side

    Oh, the history books tell it, they tell it so well
    The cavalry charged and the Indians fell
    The cavalry charged and the Indians died
    Oh the country was young then, 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

    Oh, the first World War, well it came and it went
    And 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 with God 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 our side

    But now we've 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 with God on your side

    In many a dark hour I've been thinking 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 leaving, I'm weary as hell
    The confusion I'm feeling, 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
