                EVE OF DESTRUCTION
   PF Sloan   
   performed by Barry McGuire.

capo: 2nd fret

     C             F         G
The eastern world, it is explodin',
C                     F       G
Violence flarin' and bullets loading.
You're old enough to kill,
F            G
but not for votin',
You don't believe in war,
     F                     G 
So what's that gun you're totin'?
And even the Jordan River has 
F        G
bodies floating...

         C       F       
But you tell me, over and 
G        C               Am
over and over again, my friend,
aah, you don't believe 
      G                  C       F G C
we're on the eve of destruction.

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

Repeat chorus

My blood's so mad, feels like coagulating.
And I'm sitting here, just contemplating.
I can't twist the truth, it has no regulation.
A handful of senators don't pass legislation.
And marches alone can't bring integration,
when human respect is disintegrating.
This whole crazy world is just too frustrating...

Repeat chorus

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 damned place.
The pounding of the 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...

Repeat Chorus

Yeah, you don't believe 
      G                  C
we're on the eve of destruction.
No, no, you don't believe 
      G                  C
we're on the eve of destruction.
