Transcript of Blowin' in the Wind - Bob Dylan

How 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 ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist

Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned ?
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see?
Blowin' in the Wind By :Bob Dylan

Theme

The theme of this poem is that
all of the injustice going on in the world is not well founded, and just like the wind, all of the answers to the problems at hand are right in front of us. Many of these problem are unnecessary and do not benefit mankind in anyway.


Rhetorical question is used throughout the song to provoke thought
The wind is an allusion to life
The sky is juxtaposed with crying
