Blowing In The Wind – Bob Dylan (1963)

1) How many roads must a man walk down,
before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail,
before she sleeps in the sand?
And how many times must a cannon ball fly,
before they’re forever banned?

Refrein:
The answer my friend
is blowing in the wind,
the answer is blowing in the wind.

2) How many years can a mountain exist,
before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist,
before they’re allowed to be free?
And how many times can a man turn his head,
and pretend that he just doesn’t see?

Refrein:
The answer my friend (etc.)

Tussenspel: (gitaar + mondharmonica)

3) How many times must a man look up,
before he sees the sky?
And how many ears must one man have,
before he can hear people cry ?
And how many deaths will it take till we know,
that too many people have died?

Refrein:
The answer my friend (etc.)
