[12 string guitar]


   D                           G            
(1)the Eastern world           it is exploding
(2)dont you understand         what im trying to say
(3)think of all the hate       there is in red china  
   violence flaring and        bullets loading
   and cant you feel the fears that im feeling today   
   then take a look around     to selma alabama 
   youre old enough to kill    but not for voting
   if the button is pushed     theres no running away
   you may leave here          for four days in space  

   you dont believe in war     but whats that gun youre toting
   theyll be know one to save  with tha world in a grave  
   but when you return         its the same old place 
   even the jordan river       has bodies floating
   take a look around you boy  its bound to scare you boy
   the pounding of the drums   the pride and disgrace

(3)you can bury your dead      but dont leave a trace
  hate your next door neighbor but dont forget to say grace

G     A


mcguire version

G                            G          A
yer my bloods so mad         feels like coagulating
im sitting here              just contemplating
i cant twist the truth       it knows no regulation 
hand full of sedatives       dont pass legislation 
and marches alone            cant bring integration 
when human respect is        disintegrating                        
this whole crazy world       is just to frustrating
