Eve of destruction ( Barry McGuire ) 65

Intro: D, Dsus4/ Dsus2/ ( 4X )

D G A
The eastern world, it is explodin’.
D G A
Violence flarin’, 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 totin’
D G D
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin’

D
But you tell me
G A D Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
G
Ah, you don’t believe
A
We’re on the eve
D G, A, D, Dsus4, Dsus2...
of destruction.

D G A
Don’t you understand what I’m tryin’ to say
D G A
Can’t you feel the fears I’m feelin’ today?
D G A
If the button is pushed, there’s no runnin’ away
D G A
There’ll be no one to save, with the world in a grave
D
Take a look around you boy
G A
It’s bound to scare you boy

D
But you tell me
G A D Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
G
Ah, you don’t believe
A
We’re on the eve
D G, A, D, Dsus4, Dsus2...
of destruction.

D G A
Yeah, my blood’s so mad feels like coagulatin’
D G A
I’m sitting here just contemplatin’
D G A
You can’t twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
D G A
Handful of senators don’t pass legislation
D G A
And marches alone can’t bring integration
D G A
When human respect is disintegratin’
D G A
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin’

D
But you tell me
G A D Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
G
Ah, you don’t believe
A
We’re on the eve
D G, A, D, Dsus4, Dsus2...
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 4 days in space
D G A
But when you return, it’s the same old place
D G A
The poundin’ of the drum, the pride and disgrace
D G A
You can bury your dead, but don’t leave a trace
D G A
Hate your next-door neighbor, but don’t forget to say prayers

D
But you tell me
G A D Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
G
Ah, you don’t believe
A
We’re on the eve
D G, A, D, Dsus4, Dsus2...
of destruction.
