Barry McGuire  Eve of Destruction

D Dsus4  Dsus2 4x

D   Dsus4  Dsus2   G       A
The Eastern world it is explodin'
D   Dsus4  Dsus2                 G       A
Violence flarin' and bullets loadin'
       D  Dsus4  Dsus2      G       A
You're old enough to kill, but not for votin'
    D    Dsus4  Dsus2      G                      A
You don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're totin'
    D    Dsus4  Dsus2           G      A
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'

        D        G        A        D             Bm
But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
        G                   A               D        G A
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

D   Dsus4  Dsus2              G         A
Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say  
D   Dsus4  Dsus2              G         A
Can't you feel the fear that I'm feelin' today
       D  Dsus4  Dsus2        G           A
If the button is pushed there's no running away
       D Dsus4  Dsus2         G          A
There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave
       D   Dsus4  Dsus2      G                  A
Take a look around you boy, it's bound to scare you boy

        D        G        A        D             Bm
But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
        G                   A               D        G A
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

My blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'
I'm sittin' here just contemplatin'
You can't twist the truth it knows no regulation
And a handful of Senators don't pass legislation
Marches alone can't bring integration
When human respect is disintegratin'
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'
 
       D        G        A        D             Bm
But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
        G                   A               D        G A
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
You may leave here for four days in space
But when you return, it's the same old place
The pounding drums, the pride and disgrace
You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace
Hate your next door neighbor
But don't forget to say grace
 
       D        G        A        D             Bm
But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
        G                   A               D        G A
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.
        G                   A               D         
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
