Blowin’ in the Wind

by Bob Dylan

from the album “Encores”


Lyrics

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you can call him a man
And how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she can sleep in the sand
And how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they are forever banned
The answer, my friends, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Now How many years can the mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea
And how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free
And how many times can that man turn his head
Pretending he just doesn’t see
The answer, my friends, 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
And how many times can a man turn his ear
Before he can hear people cry
And how many deaths will it take till we learn
That too many people have died
The answer, my friends, still blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Yeah, The answer, my friends, is still blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
