W. Original Motion Picture movie - With God on Our Side lyrics

rate me

Oh my name it is nothin'<br>

My age it means less<br>

The country I come from<br>

Is called the Midwest<br>

I's taught and brought up there<br>

The laws to abide<br>

And that land that I live in<br>

Has God on its side.<br>


Oh the history books tell it<br>

They tell it so well<br>

The cavalries charged<br>

The Indians fell<br>

The cavalries charged<br>

The Indians died<br>

Oh the country was young<br>

With God on its side.<br>


Oh the Spanish-American<br>

War had its day<br>

And the Civil War too<br>

Was soon laid away<br>

And the names of the heroes<br>

I's made to memorize<br>

With guns in their hands<br>

And God on their side.<br>


Oh the First World War, boys<br>

It closed out its fate<br>

The reason for fighting<br>

I never got straight<br>

But I learned to accept it<br>

Accept it with pride<br>

For you don't count the dead<br>

When God's on your side.<br>


When the Second World War<br>

Came to an end<br>

We forgave the Germans<br>

And we were friends<br>

Though they murdered six million<br>

In the ovens they fried<br>

The Germans now too<br>

Have God on their side.<br>


I've learned to hate Russians<br>

All through my whole life<br>

If another war starts<br>

It's them we must fight<br>

To hate them and fear them<br>

To run and to hide<br>

And accept it all bravely<br>

With God on my side.<br>


But now we got weapons<br>

Of the chemical dust<br>

If fire them we're forced to<br>

Then fire them we must<br>

One push of the button<br>

And a shot the world wide<br>

And you never ask questions<br>

When God's on your side.<br>


In a many dark hour<br>

I've been thinkin' about this<br>

That Jesus Christ<br>

Was betrayed by a kiss<br>

But I can't think for you<br>

You'll have to decide<br>

Whether Judas Iscariot<br>

Had God on his side.<br>


So now as I'm leavin'<br>

I'm weary as Hell<br>

The confusion I'm feelin'<br>

Ain't no tongue can tell<br>

The words fill my head<br>

And fall to the floor<br>

If God's on our side<br>

He'll stop the next war.<br>
