With God On Our Side Lyrics

Oh my name it means nothin'
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I was taught and raised up there The laws to abide
And that 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
The country was young With God on its side
The Spanish-American War had its day
The Civil War too Was soon laid away
The names of the heroes I was made to memorize
With guns in their hands And God on their side.

The First World War,It came and it went
The reason for fighting I never did get
But I learned to accept it Accept it with pride
You don't count the dead When God's on your side.

The Second World War It Came to an end
We forgave the Germans And then we were friends
Though they murdered six million In the ovens they
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 themTo run and to hide
And accept it all bravely With God on my side.

But now we got weapons Of the chemical dust
If use them we're forced to Then use 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 feeling kinda tired
The confusion I'm feelin' has got my head all unwired
The words fill my brain And fall to the floor
If God's on our side He'll stop the next war
