When God Made Me

These are two of my favorite Neil Young songs.  “Four Strong Winds” & “When God Made Me” …Neil is an artist all unto himself.  Below are the lyrics for “When God Made Me”,  written with truth and compassion for all living in this world.  Wishing you all a peaceful, blessed day…

“When God Made Me”

Was he thinkin’ about my country
Or the color of my skin?
Was he thinkin’ ’bout my religion
And the way I worshipped him?
Did he create just me in his image
Or every living thing?

When God made me
When God made me

Was he planning only for believers
Or for those who just have faith?
Did he envision all the wars
That were fought in his name?
Did he say there was only one way
To be close to him?

When God made me
When God made me

Did he give me the gift of love
To say who I could choose?

When God made me
When God made me

When God made me
When God made me

Did he give me the gift of voice
So some could silence me?
Did he give me the gift of vision
Not knowing what I might see?
Did he give me the gift of compassion
To help my fellow man?

When God made me
When God made me

When God made me
When God made me
