Blowin' In The Wind
Lyrics
How many roads most a man walk down
Before you call him a man
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned
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
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn't see
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Yes, how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky
Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry
Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
