G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 1]

C                F  Em
Oh my name it is nothin'
   G7  G6 G     C
My age it means less
    F   Em  G C
The country I come from
   F             C
Is called the Midwest
    F      Em  G       C
I's taught and brought up there
    F       C
The laws to abide
                    F    Em
And the land that I live in
    G7  G6 G    C
Has God on it's side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 2]

C                    F    Em
Oh the history books tell it
     G7   G6 G  C
They tell it so well
    F Em G    C
The cavalries charged
    F       C
The Indians fell
    F Em G    C
The cavalries charged
    F       C
The Indians died
                   F  Em
Oh the country was young
     G7  G6 G    C
With God on it's side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 3]

C            F   Em
The Spanish-American
G7    G6  G    C
War's had it's day
        F Em  G   C
And the Civil War too
    F         C
Was soon laid away
        F     Em G   C     
And the names of the heroes
    F           C        
I's made to memorize
                   F Em
With guns on their hands
    G7  G6 G     C    
And God on their side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 4]

C                    F Em
The First World War, boys
   G7   G6  G  C
It came and it went
    F  Em  G   C
The reason for fighting
  F         C
I never did get
      F       Em G C   
But I learned to accept it
  F            C
Accept it with pride
                        F Em
For you don't count the dead
     G7    G6 G    C    
When God's on your side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 5]

C                     F Em
When the Second World War
G7   G6 G  C
Came to an end
   F  Em   G   C
We forgave the Germans
    F            C
And then we were friends
            F  Em    G   C
Though they murdered six million
       F          C
In the ovens they fried
                F Em
The Germans now too
     G7  G6 G     C
Have God on their side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 6]

C                    F  Em
I've learned to hate Russians
    G7      G6 G     C
All through my whole life
    F   Em G   C
If another war comes
     F            C 
It's them we must fight
   F    Em   G   C
To hate them and fear them
   F          C
To run and to hide
                  F  Em
And accept it all bravely
     G7  G6 G  C
With God on my side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 7]

C              F  Em
But now we got weapons
       G7 G6 G  C
Of the chemical dust
   F    Em   G     C
If fire them we're forced to
     F            C
Then fire them we must
    F    Em G   C
One push of the button
      F              C
And a shot the world wide
                  F   Em
And you never ask questions
     G7    G6 G    C
When God's on your side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 8]

C              F Em
In a many dark hour
          G7  G6   G     C
I've been thinkin' about this
     F Em G 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
    G7  G6 G   C
Had God on his side.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C 

[Verse 9]

C             F  Em
So now as I'm leavin'
    G7 G6 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 fall to the floor
                F Em
If God's on our side
      G7   G6  G    C
He'll stop the next war.
C                F  Em
G7 G6 G C
