Eve Of Destruction

	  		CAPO I 
 
 
Intro G, D, A 
 
 
    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 
And ya 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 
Well 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 
And ya 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 
Well 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 innovation, when human respect is disintegratin'. 
 
D                           G           A 
This whole fuckin' world is just so frustratin'. 
 
        D        G        A         D              Bm 
And 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, and take a look around your own backyard! 
 
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 fright 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 
And you tell me, over and over and over again my friend, 
 
                G                    A                D           G     A 
          No, you don't believe we're on the Eve of Destruction. 
 
 
Hope ya like it
