Eve of Destruction - chords, tab and comments

The L.A. based cult singer & songwriter P.F.Sloan wrote this in 1964, at the time parts of the American population started to be concious, and Barry McGuire - a former member of "The New Christy Minstrels" - grumbled it to the top of the charts in 1965 for the whole wide world to listen ... but not too many did. Rats; almost 50 years later, you could rearrange a few lines, change a few occations, swap events and the conclusion of the song is still cruelsome valid. In fact, in 1999 Sloan rewrote it, McGuire rerecorded it ... and the world reneglected it.
G           G/F#  C         D
the eastern world it is exploding
G          Bm          C       D
violence flaring and bullets loading
        G            G/F#  C            D
you're old enough to kill but not for voting
      G              Bm        C                     D
you don't believe in war but what's that gun you're toting
      G              Bm        C        D
and even the Jordan river has bodies floating
         G   Em  Bm        Am       G     Bm       Em
but you tell me over and over and over again my friend
           C                  D                 G
that you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
