Buddy Miller - With God On Our Side

Bob Dylan's anti-war song "With God On Our Side" first appeared on his 1964 album The Times They Are A-Changin', and has been covered by countless artists since. Among the best of these are The Neville Brothers and especially this one by Buddy Miller, released on his 2004 Universal United House Of Prayer. The song takes the listener through a number of wars throughout history, fought in the name of God and thus justified in the eyes of the believers. Miller's raw voice and the arrangement he's given his version reeks of dust and dirt and blood, a slow and painstaking walk through the horrors and atrocities we have visited upon each other for nine intense minutes of great musicianship. It's a killer performance in every way.
