are you bombing with me jesus
Are you bombing with me, Jesus
On the side of Uncle Sam
Will you help us with your mercy
So we can win in Vietnam

I went out of the battle lines
I saw a lad in prayer
He prayed to Jesus up above
To take away his fear

Are you bombing with me, Jesus
On the side of Uncle Sam
Will you help us with your mercy
So we can win in Vietnam

The pilot in his death plane
Napalm flying high
He prays to Jesus up above
As he rains death from the sky

Are you bombing with me, Jesus
On the side of Uncle Sam
Will you help us with your mercy
So we can win in Vietnam

The pilot with his A-bomb
The plane Enola Gay
His hand upon the rosary
He bombed Japan that day

Are you bombing with me, Jesus
On the side of Uncle Sam
Will you help us with your mercy
So we can win in Vietnam

Are you bombing with me Jesus
Will you stay here by my side
Will you help us in our need now
Until the world we crucify
