                            EVE OF DESTRUCTION
                              (Barry McGuire)

    D             G       A7       D                   G              A
The Eastern world it is explodin', 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's what's that gun you're totin'?

    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     D                                G         A
Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say?  Can't you feel the fear 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         A7      D                G          A
My blood's so mad feels like coagulatin', I'm sittin' here just contemplatin'

    D                        G            A             D                         G         A
You can't twist the truth it knows no regulation, and a handful of Senators don't pass legislation.

D                   G         D             D                G      D
Marches alone can't bring integration, when human respect is disintegratin'.

D                         G            A
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.



D                           G         A7          D                     G         A
Think of all the hate there is in Red China, then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!

D                      G            A          D                         G        A
You may leave here for four days in space, But when you return, it's the same old place.

    D                   G            A              D                         G       A  
The pounding drums, the pride and disgrace, 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 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.
