Can someone add contemporary verses to Bob Dylan's song ?

This is how great songs get ruined, IMHO.

Dylan took "The Patriot Game" for "With God on our side." Why not re-do it? A lot of Dylan is re-write of older material. Just be careful of his publishers-recording companies copyrights.

I recall in the Bible
A long time ago
God said to the Israelites
You can have Jericho
Though the people who live there now
They may run, they may hide
Find them and kill them all
Cos God's on your side

(above brand new verse written by my friend, Katie A.)

Then the Second World War, boys
It came to an end
We destroyed Hiroshima, Berlin and Dresden
With the great flying fortresses
On their thundering ride
They had death in their bomb bays
And God on their side

(that amended verse added by me)

Lots of possibilities here...

I've notice that in more recent times Dylan has dropped the "Second World War" verse altogether in live performances, so I gather he has become uncomfortable with it...I figured why not bring responsibility back home where it belongs, instead of fingering everybody's favourite bad guy, the Nazis, who were SOOOO bad that pointing it out yet one more time is rather akin, at this juncture, to yelling about water being wet...

If you cannot overcome evil at home in your own community, you can forget about ever overcoming it abroad.
