Eve Of Destuction  Byrds

P.F. Sloan

[D]The Eastern world [G]it is [A]exploding
[D]Violence flaring [G]bullets [A]loading
[D]you're old enough to kill [G]but not for [A] voting
[D]you don't believe in war[G] but what's that gun your [A]totin'?
[D]and even the Jordan River [G]has bodies [A]floating
[D]And you tell me [G]over and [A]over and [D]over again my [G]friend
[G]you don't believe [A]we're on the eve of [D]destruction  
[D]Don't ya understand what [G]I'm trying to say
[D]And can't you feel the fears that I'm [G]feeling today
[D]If the button is pushed [G]there's no running away
[D]There'll be no one to save with the [G]world in a grave
[D]Take a look around ya boy [G]it's bound to scare you boy and ya
[D]tell me [G]over and [A]over and [D]over again my [B]friend
[G]you don't believe [A]we're on the eve of [D]destruction
[D] yeah my blood's so mad [G]feels like [A]coagulatin'
[D] I'm sittin' here just [G]contemplatin'[A]
[D] I can't twist the truth it [G]knows no regulation[A]
[D] a handful of senators  [G]don't pass legislation[A]
[D] and marches alone can't [G]bring integration[A]
[D] when human respect is [G]disintegratin'[A]
[D]this whole crazy world [G] is just too frustratin'[A]
[D]and ya tell me
[G]over and [A]over and [D]over  [G]again my friend
[G]you don't believe we're [A]on the eve of destruction[D]
[D] Think of all the hate there is [G]in Red China
[D]Then take a look around to [G]Selma, Alabama
[D]You may leave here for [G]four days in space
[D]But when you return it's the [G]same old place
[D]The pounding of the drums the [G]pride and disgrace
[D]You can bury your dead but [G]but don't leave a trace
[D]Hate your next door neighbor but [G]don't forget to say grace and
[D]tell me [G]over and [A]over and [D]over and over [B]again my friend
[G]you don't believe [A]we're on the eve of [D]destruction oh no no no no
[G]you don't believe we're on t[A]he eve of [D]destruction[G]  [A]
