D0 G1 A72 D3 G4 A5 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 2You don't believe in war, but's what's that gun you're totin'?
D12 G13 A14 3And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'
D15 G16 A17 D18 Bm19 4But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
G20 A21 7 Ah, you don't believe we're on the
D22 G23 A24 8 Eve of Destruction.
D25 G26 A27 11Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say?
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,
D40 G41 A42 D43 Bm44 16But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
G45 A46 19 Ah, you don't believe we're on the
D47 G48 A49 20 Eve of Destruction.
D50 G51 A752 23My blood's so mad feels like coagulatin',
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'.
D71 G72 A73 D74 Bm75 30But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
G76 A77 33 Ah, you don't believe we're on the
D78 G79 A80 34 Eve of Destruction.
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 42you can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace,
D99 G100 A101 43Hate your next door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace.
D102 G103 A104 D105 Bm106 44But you tell me, over and over and over again my friend,
G107 A108 47 Ah, you don't believe we're on the
D109 G110 A111 48 Eve of Destruction.
