[Verse 1]
      C             F Em
Oh my name it ain't nothin'
   G            C
My age it means less
    F   C/E G/D C
The country I   come from
   F             C
Is called the Midwest
    F      C/E G/D     C
I's taught and brought up there
    F       C
The laws to abide
                         F    Em
And that the land that I live in
    G      G7  C | % | % | F C/E G/D | C | 
Has God on its side


[Verse 2]
       C             F    Em
Oh the history books tell it
     G          C
They tell it so well
    F C/E G/D  C
The caval-ries charged
    F       C
The Indians fell
    F C/E G/D  C
The caval-ries charged
    F       C
The Indians died
                   F Em
Oh the country was young
     G          C | % | F C/E G/D | C | 
With God on its side


[Verse 3]
    C         F  Em
The Spanish-American
G           C
War had its day
        F C/E G/D C
And the Civil War too
    F          C
Was soon laid away
        F     C/E G/D C
And the names of  the heroes
    F           C
I's made to memorize
                   F Em
With guns in their hands
     G     G7    C | % | F | Em | % | F C/E G/D | C | % |
And God on their side


[Verse 4]
    C           F    Em
The First World War, boys
   F    C/E G/D C
It came and it  went
    F  Em  Dm  C
The reason for fighting
  F         C
I never did get
      F       Em G/D C
But I learned to ac- cept it
  F            C
Accept it with pride
                        F    Em
For you don't count the dead when
G        G7   C | % | F C/E G/D | C |
God's on your side


[Verse 5]
    C            F Em
The Second World War
G          C
Came to an end
   F  Em       C
We forgave the Germans
    F            C
And then we were friends
            F        Em  C
Though they murdered six million
       F          C
In the ovens they fried
                F   Em
The Germans now too have 
G            C | % | F C/E G | C |
God on their side


[Verse 6]
     C                   F   Em
I've learned to hate the Russians
    G                C
All through my whole life
     F     Em  C
If another war comes
     F            C
It's them we must fight
   F    Em       C
To hate them and fear them
   F          C
To run and to hide
                  F    Em
And accept it all bravely
     G      G7  C | % | F C/E G | C |
With God on my side
   


[Verse 7]
 C             F  Em
But now we got weapons
   G        C
Of chemical dust
   F    Em         C
If fire them we're forced to
     F    Em      C
Then fire them we must
    F    Em     C
One push of the button
      F              C
And a shot the world wide
                  F    Em
And you never ask questions
     G        G7   C | % | F C/E G | C |
When God's on your side


[Verse 8]
        C         F  Em
Through many dark hours
          G              C
I've been thinkin' about this
     F Em  C
That Jesus Christ
     F            C
Was betrayed by a kiss
    F Em    G    C
But I can't think for you
       F       C
You'll have to decide
                F  Em
Whether Judas Iscariot
    G      G7  C | % | F C/E G | C |
Had God on his side


[Verse 9] (+ coda)
   C          F  Em
So now as I'm leavin'
    G        C
I'm weary as Hell
    F Em      G   C
The confusion I'm feelin'
      F             C
Ain't no tongue can tell
    F     Em   G  C
The words fill my head
         F           C
And then fall to the floor
                     F Em
That if God's on our side
      G        G7   C | % | F | Em | % | F C/E G | C 
He'll stop the next war
