     D             G        A7
The eastern world, it is exploding
D                  G       A
Violence flarin', 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 what's that gun you're totin'
    D                          G      A
And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'

        D
But you tell me
G         A       D               Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
        G
Ah, you don't believe
      A
We're on the eve
       D
Of destruction.
(CHORUS RIFF AND CHORDS)

D                             G         A
Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say
D                            G        A
Can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today?
       D                            G       A
If the button is pushed, there's no runnin' away
            D                        G          A
There'll be no one to save, with the world in a grave
        D                        G                A
Take a look around ya boy, it's bound to scare ya boy

        D
And you tell me
G        A        D              Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
        G
Ah, you don't believe
      A  
We're on the eve
       D
Of destruction.
(REPEAT CHORUS RIFF AND CHORDS)

      D                       G      A
Yeah, my blood's so mad feels like coagulatin'
 D               G       A
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'
   D                         G         A
I can't twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
 D                        G      A
Handful of senators don't pass legislation
     D                   G     A
And marches alone can't bring integration
      D                G       A
When human respect is disintegratin'
      D                    G         A
This whole crazy world is just too frustratin'

         D
And you tell me
G        A        D               Bm
Over and over and over again, my friend
         G
Ah, you don't believe
      A
We're on the eve
      D
Of destruction.
(REPEAT CHORUS RIFF AND CHORDS)

D                           G          A
Think of all the hate there is in Red China
      D                     G       A
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
 D                     G          A
You may leave here for 4 days in space
     D                         G        A
But when you return, it's the same old place
     D                          G         A
The poundin' of the drums, the pride and disgrace
         D                   G             A
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        G              Bm
And… tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
     G
You don't believe
      A
We're on the eve
      D
Of destruction
D          G
Mm, no no, you don't believe
      A 
We're on the eve
       D
Of destruction.
