E o traducere mai curand literara, asa ca sper sa-mi iertati lipsa de inspiratie poetica (Poate o s-o refac intr-o zi mai buna). Ce e important e mesajul cantecului lui Bob Dylan, atat de actual, daca ne gandim ca nu mai stie nimeni numarul celor cazuti in Orientul Mijlociu in infruntarea fara sfarsit dintre soldatii “poporului ales” si recrutii “razboiului sfant”.

Oh my name it is nothin’
My age it means less
The country I come from
Is called the Midwest
I’s 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.

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

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

When the Second World War
Came to an end
We forgave the Germans
And 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 Russians
All through my whole life
If another war starts
It’s them we must fight
To hate them and fear them
To run and to hide
And accept it all bravely
With God on my side.

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

In a many 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
If God’s on our side
He’ll stop the next war.

Numele meu nu conteaza,
Varsta mea, nici atat,
Locul de unde vin eu,
E ca oricare din Vest.
Tara m-a-nvatat legea
De mic sa respect
Iar tara mea are
Pe Dumnezeu de partea sa.

Cartea de istorie ne-invata
Chiar cu lux de-amanunt,
Armata a tras,
Indienii au cazut.
Armata a tras,
Indienii au murit
Tara era tanara,
Cu Dumnezeu de partea sa.

A urmat apoi Mexicul,
Si Sudul la rand,
Toti uitaram razboiul,
La pace visand.
Au ramas doar eroii,
Care bravi au luptat
Cu armele-n mana,
Si Dumnezeu aliat.

In primul razboi mondial,
Iar ai nostri-au luptat
Desi nu stiu nici astazi,
De la ce s-au certat
Dar am invatat sa accept
Si sa fiu mandru chiar,
Ca nu se numara mortii
Cand Dumnezeu e de partea ta.

Cand al doilea razboi al lumii
A ajuns la sfarsit
I-am iertat pe nemti
Si ne-am imprietenit
Desi-n lagare au ucis
Sase milioane ca noi
Acum si nemtii il au
Pe Dumnezeu de partea lor.

Am invatat sa-i urasc
Pe rusi toata viata,
Daca razboiul incepe,
Cu ei vom lupta
Ii urasc si mi-e frica,
Vreau sa fug sa m-ascund
Si sa-mi zic cu mandrie
Ca Dumnezeu e de partea mea.

Dar acum avem arme
Ce savantii-au creat
Daca trebuie, trebui,
Ne-aparam cu ce-avem,
Un buton doar si lumea
Va ramane doar praf
Si nu pui intrebari
Cu Dumnezeu aliat.

In multe nopti albe,
M-am gandit la ceva
La Iisus si la tradarea,
Cu un sarut pe obraz
Nu pot spune totusi,
Asta tu sa decizi,
Daca Iuda a avut si el
Cu el pe Dumnezeu.

Acum sunt in ceata
Doar confuzie vad
Cuvintele-mi umplu mintea,
Apoi cad la podea.
Daca Dumnezeu e cu noi
Va opri urmatorul razboi.
