0The Eastern world it is explodin', violence flarin' and bullets loadin',
       D6                       G7       A8
1You're old enough to kill, but not for votin',
    D9                           G10                              A11

D28                                G29         A30
12 Can't you feel the fear that I'm feelin' today?
       D31                          G32         A33
13If the button is pushed there's no running away,
            D34                       G35          A36
14There'll be no one to save with the world in a grave.
       D37                         G38                  A39
15Take a look around you boy, it's bound to scare you boy,

D53                G54          A55
24I'm sittin' here just contemplatin'
    D56                        G57            A58
25You can't twist the truth it knows no regulation,
      D59                         G60         A61
26and a handful of Senators don't pass legislation.
D62                   G63         D64
27Marches alone can't bring integration,
     D65                G66      D67
28when human respect is disintegratin'.
D68                         G69            A70
29This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'.

D81                           G82         A783
37Think of all the hate there is in Red China,
     D84                     G85         A86
38then take a look around to Selma, Alabama!
D87                      G88            A89
39You may leave here for four days in space,
    D90                         G91        A92
40But when you return, it's the same old place.
    D93                   G94            A95
41The pounding drums, the pride and disgrace,
        D96                         G97       A98

D99                                 G100               A101
