Eve Of Destuction

Byrds

P.F. Sloan

 DGA
 The Eastern world it is exploding

 DGA
 Violence flaring bullets loading

 DGA
 you're old enough to kill but not for  voting

 DGA
 you don't believe in war but what's that gun your totin'?

 DGA
 and even the Jordan River has bodies floating

 DGADG
 And you tell me over and over and over again my friend

 GAD
 you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction  

 DG
 Don't ya understand what I'm trying to say

 DG
 And can't you feel the fears that I'm feeling today

 DG
 If the button is pushed there's no running away

 DG
 There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave

 DG
 Take a look around ya boy it's bound to scare you boy and ya

 DGADB
 tell me over and over and over again my friend

 GAD
 you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

 DGA
  yeah my blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'

 DGA
  I'm sittin' here just contemplatin'

 DGA
  I can't twist the truth it knows no regulation

 DGA
  a handful of senators  don't pass legislation

 DGA
  and marches alone can't bring integration

 DGA
  when human respect is disintegratin'

 DGA
 this whole crazy world  is just too frustratin'

 D
 and ya tell me

 GADG
 over and over and over  again my friend

 GAD
 you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

 DG
  Think of all the hate there is in Red China

 DG
 Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama

 DG
 You may leave here for four days in space

 DG
 But when you return it's the same old place

 DG
 The pounding of the drums the pride and disgrace

 DG
 You can bury your dead but but don't leave a trace

 DG
 Hate your next door neighbor but don't forget to say grace and

 DGADB
 tell me over and over and over and over again my friend

 GAD
 you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction oh no no no no

 GADGA
 you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction  

 D
