Eve Of Destruction

Barry McGuire

 DD11D9DD11D9

 DGA7
 The eastern world it is explodin',
 DGA7
 violence flarin', bullets loadin',
 DGA7
you're old enough to kill but not for votin',
 DGA7
you don't believe in war, what's that gun you're totin',
 DGA7
and even the Jordan river has bodies floatin',

Chorus
 DGA7DBm
but you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
 GA7D
ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

 DD11D9DD11D9

Don't you understand, what I'm trying to say?
Can't you see the fear that I'm feeling today?
If the button is pushed, there's no running away,
There'll be noone to save with the world in a grave,
take a look around you, boy, it's bound to scare you, boy,
but you tell me...

Chorus

Yeah, my blood's so mad, feels like coagulatin',
I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin',
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation,
handful of Senators don't pass legislation,
and marches alone can't bring integration,
when human respect is disintegratin',
this whole crazy world is just too frustratin',
and you tell me...

Chorus

Think of all the hate there is in Red China!
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
Ah, you may leave here, for four days in space,
but when your eturn, it's the same old place,
the poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace,
you can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace,
hate your next-door-neighbour, but don't forget to say grace,
and you tell me...
Chorus
