The Eve of Destruction chords
The Turtles 1965 (P.F. Sloan)

D 

    D             G       A
The Eastern world it is explodin'
D                    G       A
Violence flarin' and bullets loadin'
       D                       G       A
You're old enough to kill, but not for votin'
    D                         G                      A
You don't believe in war, but what's that gun you're toting?
    D                         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                             G         A
Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say  
D                                 G         A
Can't you feel the fears that I'm feelin' today
       D                        G           A
If the button is pushed there's no running away
            D                       G          A
There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave
       D                         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.

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

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