With God On Our Side - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Oh my name it is nothin'

 

My age it means less

 

The country I come from

Is called the Midwest

 

Is taught and brought up there

The laws to abide

 

And that land that I live in

Has God on it's 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 it's side

Oh the Spanish-American

War had it's day

 

And the Civil War too

Was soon laid away

 

And the names of the heroes

 

Is made to memorize

With guns in their hands

 

And God on their side

 

Oh the First World War boys

It closed out it's fate

 

The reason for fighting

 

I never got straight

 

But I learned to accept it

Accept it with pride

 

For you don't count the dead

When God's on your side

 

When the Second World War

Came to an end

 

We forgave the Germans

 

And we were friends

 

Though they murdered six million

 

In the ovens they fried

 

The Germans now too

Have God on their side

 

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

But 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

 

And a shot the world wide

 

And you never ask questions

 

When God's on your side

 

In a many dark hour

I've been thinkin' 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

So now as I'm leavin'

I'm weary as Hell

The confusion I'm feelin'

 

Ain't no tongue can tell

 

The words fill my head

And fall to the floor

If God's on our side

He'll stop the next war
