From “The Eve of Destruction”

Lyrics by P. F. Sloan / Sung by Barry McGuire (recorded July 1965)

The eastern world it is exploding
Violence flarin’, bullets loadin’
You’re old enough to kill but not for votin’
You don’t believe in war but whats that gun you’re totin’?

. . . .

Think of all the hate there is in Red China
Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
You may leave here for four days in space
But when you return it’s the same old place . . .
