                WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE
written by Bob Dylan
performed by Manfred Mann

Time: 3/4

A / / D - - A - - 2 - / E7 / / A / / 2 / / 3 /
               D A         E7            A
My name, it is nothing; my age, it means less
              F#m            D                A
The country I come from is a part of the free West
                         F#m           D        A
I was taught and brought up there, its laws to abide
                         D    A      E7         A
And that the land that I live in has God on its side

Verse 2:
Oh the history books tell it, they tell it so well
The cavalries charged, the Indians fell
The cavalries charged, the Indians died
For the country was young with God on its side

Verse 3:
Then the first World War, it came and it went
The reason for fighting, I never could get
But I learned to accept it, accept it with pride
And you don't count the dead when God's on your side

Verse 4:
Then the second World War, it came to an end
We forgave the Germans, and now we are friends
Though they murdered 6 million, in the ovens they fried
The Germans now too have God on their side

Verse 5:
And now we have weapons of chemical dust
If fire them we're forced too, well then fire 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

Verse 6:
In many a dark hour I think 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

Verse 7 (decelerate on last line):
And now as I leave you, I'm weary as hell
The confusion I'm feeling no tongue can tell
The words fill my head and drop to the floor
If God's on our side, he'll stop the next war
