Has God on its side๐Ÿ’ฅ

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

Oh, my name, it isn’t anything
My age means less
The country I come from
It is called the Midwest
I was taught and brought up there
The laws to abide
And that land that I live in
Has God on its 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 its side

The Spanish-American
War had its day
And the Civil War, too
He was soon laid away
And the names of the heroes
I was made to memorise
With guns in their hands
And God on their side

During the First World War, boys
It came, and it went
The reason for fighting
I never did get
But I learned to accept it
Accept it with pride
For you don’t count the dead
When God’s on your side

The Second World War
It came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And then 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 the Russians
Throughout my whole life
If another war comes
It’s them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side

But now we got weapons
Of chemical dust
If we fire them, we’re forced to
Then fire, we must
With one push of the button
And a shot the worldwide
And I don’t remember you asking questions
When God’s on your 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.

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
That if God’s on our side
He’ll stop the next war…Bob Dylan

DID we learn anything ?

By Peace Truth

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
