“When God Made Me” by Neil Young

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
