"With God On Our Side" lyrics - RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT

"With God On Our Side"

Oh my name it is nothin', my age it means less
The country I come from is called the midwest
I's taught and raised up there, the laws to abide
And that the land that I live in has God on her side

The history books tell it, they tell it so well
The cavalry charged, the indians fell
The cavalry charged, the indians died
The country was young with God on our side

Through many a 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

And now as I'm leavin', I'm feelin' kind of tired
The confusion I'm feelin', got my head all unwind
The words fill my brain and fall to the floor
If God is on our side, he'll stop the next war
