Canons Of Christianity (Live) - Phil Ochs (菲尔·奥克斯)

The other night a voice came to me

 

Turned out it was god

 

He said Ochs wake up this is god here over

 

I said you're putting me on of course Dylan

 

So he did a few tricks

He moved the bed back and forth

 

Trembling I asked what is it you want o lord

 

He said well frankly Phil I went downtown the other day

Saw the greatest story ever told

Couldn't believe it it's gone too far

 

Something must be done about Christianity

 

Then woof in a puff of smoke he disappeared

 

The next morning I woke up had a few drinks

Realized it was all true

 

And decided to do something about Christianity

 

But what could I do me a poor humble boy from the sticks

 

Then I remembered I was a songwriter

 

So I sat down with pen in hand over my typewriter

 

Ended up writing this next song

Which is a hymn about Christianity

Actually an anti-hymn the first anti-hymn folks

 

Christian cannons have fired at my days

 

With the warning beneath the holy blaze

 

And bow to our authority

Say the cannons of Christianity

 

Oh the children will be sent to schools

 

Minds of clay are molded to their rules

Learn to fear all of eternity

Warn the cannons of Christianity

 

Holy hands will count the money raised

 

Like a king the lord is richly praised

On a cross of diamond majesty

Say the cannons of Christianity

 

Missionaries will travel on crusades

The word is given the heathen souls are saved

 

Conversions to our morality

Sigh the cannons of Christianity

 

Come the wars and turn the rules around

 

To bend your soul on the battle ground

And the lord will march beside me

Drone the cannons of Christianity

 

Cathedral walls will glitter with their gold

 

And the sermons speak through silver robes

Building castles amidst the poverty

Say the cannons of Christianity

 

Worship now and wash your sins away

 

Drop the coins fall to your knees and pray

Cleanse the world of all hypocrisy

Smile the cannons of Christianity

 

Christian cannons have fired at my days

 

With the warning beneath the holy blaze

And bow to our authority

Say the cannons of Christianity

 

Cry the cannons of Christianity
