How many roads must a man walk down?
Before they call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
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.
How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist
Before theyre allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head?
Pretend that he just doesnt see?
The answer my friend is blowin in the wind.
The answer is blowin in the wind
How many times must a man look up?
Before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have?
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take?
Till he knows that too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowinin the wind
The answer is blowinin the wind.
