Bob Dylan

C F C F C  F C F C

C          F   C
Oh, my name it is nothin'
   F            C
My age it means less
              F    C
The country I come from
   F             C
Is called the Midwest
                       F  C
I's taught and brought up there
    F        C
The laws to abide
                     F    C
And that land that I live in
    F          C
Has God on its side.

C             F    C
Oh, the history books tell it
     F          C   
They tell it so well
              F   C
The cavalries charged
    F       C
The Indians fell
              F   C    
The cavalries charged
    F       C
The Indians died
                    F  C
Oh, the country was young
     F          C
With God on its side.

C       F    C
Oh, the Spanish-American
    F        C
War had it s day
                  F C
And the Civil War too
    F          C
Was soon laid away
                     F  C
And the names of the heroes
    F            C
I's made to memorize
                   F  C
With guns in their hands
    F            C
And God on their side.

C           F    C
Oh, the First World War, boys
   F              C
It closed out its fate
               F    C
The reason for fighting
  F         C
I never got straight
                 F      C
But I learned to accept it
  F            C
Accept it with pride
                        F  C
For you don't count the dead
     F             C
When God's on your side.

C      F     C
When the Second World War
F          C
Came to an end
               F  C
We forgave the Germans
    F       C
And we were friends
                         F   C
Though they murdered six million
       F          C
In the ovens they fried
            F   C
The Germans now too
     F            C
Have God on their side.

C               F   C
I've learned to hate Russians
    F                C
All through my whole life
               F  C
If another war starts
     F            C
It's them we must fight
                 F    C
To hate them and fear them
   F          C
To run and to hide
                  F    C
And accept it all bravely
     F         C
With God on my side.

C          F  C
But now we got weapons
       F        C
Of the chemical dust
                   F      C
If fire them we're forced to
     F            C
Then fire them we must
                F  C
One push of the button
      F              C
And a shot the world wide
                  F    C
And you never ask questions
     F             C
When God's on your side.

C         F  C
In a many dark hour
          F              C
I've been thinkin' about this
           F   C
That Jesus Christ
      F           C
Was betrayed by a kiss
            F         C
But I can't think for you
       F         C
You'll have to decide
                F   C
Whether Judas Iscariot
    F          C
Had God on his side.

C          F   C
So now as I'm leavin'
    F        C
I'm weary as Hell
                  F   C
The confusion I'm feelin'
         F          C
Ain't no tongue can tell
          F       C
The words fill my head
    F           C
And fall to the floor
   F            C
If God's on our side
      F             C
He'll stop the next war.

About the artist behind With God On Our Side Chords:

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, musician, and a poet who has been a major figure in popular music for five decades. Much of Dylan's most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when he became an informal chronicler and a reluctant figurehead of American unrest. A number of his songs, such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'",[1] became anthems of the anti-war and civil rights movements. His most recent studio album, Modern Times, released on August 29, 2006, entered the U.S. album chart at number one, and that same year was named Album of the Year by Rolling Stone magazine.[2]

Dylan's early lyrics incorporated politics, social commentary, philosophy and literary influences, defying existing pop music conventions and appealing widely to the counterculture. While expanding and personalizing musical styles, he has shown steadfast devotion to many traditions of American song, from folk and country/blues to gospel, rock and roll and rockabilly, to English, Scottish and Irish folk music, and even jazz and swing.[3][4]

Dylan performs with the guitar, keyboard and harmonica. Backed by a changing lineup of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the "Never Ending Tour". Although his accomplishments as performer and recording artist have been central to his career, his songwriting is generally regarded as his greatest contribution.[5]

Over many years, Dylan has been recognized and honored for his songwriting, performing, and recording. His records have earned Grammy, Golden Globe, and Academy Awards, and he has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 1999, Dylan was included in TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century, and in 2004, he was ranked number two in Rolling Stone magazine's list of "Greatest Artists of All Time", second only to The Beatles.[6] In January 1990, Dylan was made a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres by French Minister of Culture Jack Lang; in 2000, he was awarded the Polar Music Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music;[7] and in 2007, Dylan was awarded the Prince of Asturias Award in Arts in Spain by the Fundación Príncipe de Asturias. He has been nominated several times for the Nobel Prize in Literature.[8][9][10]

In 2008, Dylan was awarded a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power."[11] Previous recipients of this award include Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane.[12]
