Song Of The Atom Bomb, The: Dexter Logan and Darrell Edwards [1952]

A presumably early country reaction to the atomic bomb and one full of the requisite fire and brimstone.

No biographical data was available for these two artists.

LYRICS/TRANSCRIPTION:
Song Of The Atom Bomb, The: Dexter Logan and Darrell Edwards [1952]

There'll be atom bombs bursting, the world all aflame
When the powers of Satan try to stamp out God's name
No mortal that's living will be able to stand
When the fire of the atom starts burning our land

God said He would show wonder from Heaven above
People die in terror for rejecting God's love
Fire, smoke and vapors from the heavens will come
The vengeance of God for the evil we've done!

Some of God's chosen prophets in the Bible we're told
Looked down through the ages, saw our history unfold.
They saw blood flow like water and dying dismay
They saw fire fall from Heaven, saw bombs on the way.

Then from out of the heavens, came a mighty flame
Bombs of destruction to purge the world of shame
Earthquakes and lightnings and the whole world at war
But the fire of the atom will be greater by far.

That fire's surely coming, ever broadening its path
Then we'll cry for the rocks to hide them from God's own wrath
They would not heed the warning that was preached far and near
With their souls lost forever they will die in despair.

Now this war for supremacy will increase its pace
The plan of mad dictators to destroy all the race
We who have salvation and trust in Jesus' Name
Shall be brought up to meet Him and be safe from the flames.
