written by Bob Dylan
from the album "Universal United House of Prayer"
tabbed 4/22/05
Here's one to make you think.  Corrections welcome.

INTRO:  C  F  G  C  F  G  C

                 C    F   G                  C
Oh my name it is nothing    my age it means less
                    F                          C
The country I come from     is called the Midwest
                     F                         C 
I was taught brought up there    the laws too abide
                    C     F G                 C
And the land that I live in   has God on its side

                      C   F  G                   C
Oh the history books tell it   they tell it so well
                  F                    C
The cavalry charged   and the Indians fell
                 F                     C
The cavalry charged    and the Indians died
                     C   F   G                  C
Oh the country was young and   with God on its side

Well the Spanish American War it had its day
And the Civil War too though it was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes I was taught to memorize
With guns in their hands and God on their side


Oh the first World War boys it came and it went
The reason for fighting I never did get
But I learned to accept it and accept it with pride
'Cause you don't the dead boys 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
You see the Germans now too had God on their side

I've learned to hate the Russians all through my whole life
And if another wars come 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

INTRO (2x)

Now we got the 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
No you never ask questions when God's on your side

In a many dark hour I've been thinkin' 'bout this
That Jesus Christ was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you no you'll have to decide
Whether Judas Escariot had God on his side

So now that I'm leavin' I'm weary as hell
The confusion I'm feelin' no tongue can tell
The words fill my head and they fall to the floor
But if God's on our side he'll stop the next war
