Some other versions of "With God on Our Side"


Oh my name it ain't nothing, my age it means less
The country I come from is called the mid-west
I was 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 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 made to memorise
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

But now we've got weapons of chemical dust
If fire them we're forced to, then fire them we must
One push of the button - one shot world-wide
And you never ask questions when God's on your side

Through many a dark hour I've been thinking 'bout this
That Jesus Christ was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you - you 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 worlds fill my head and they fall to the floor
That if God's on our side he'll stop the next war
