With God on Our Side Lyrics - Joan Baez

Review The Song (0)



My name, it means nothin'
My age it means less
And the country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I was brought up there and taught there
The law to abide
And 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
And the Indians fell
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 taught to memorize
With their guns in their hands
And God on their side.

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

And the Second World War, boys
It came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And called them our friends
Though they killed six million
In the ovens they fried
The Germans now too
Have God on their side.

Oh, 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 bravely
With God on my side.

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

For many long years
I've thought about this
That Jesus Christ
Was betrayed by a kiss
I can't do it for you
You've got to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot
Had God on his side.

And now as 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
If God is on our side
He'll stop the next war.
