Blowin' in the Wind


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?
How many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they're forever banned?

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 blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
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

..., Man, call him a man
Bump ba dump bum, ...
..., Sand, sleeps in the sand
Bump ba dump bum, ...

Bump ba dump bum, ...
..., Sky, see the sky
Bump ba dump bum, ...
..., Cry, hear people cry
Bump ba dump bum, ...

Bump ba dump bum, ...
..., Sea, washed to the sea
Bump ba dump bum, ...
..., Free, 'lowed to be free
Bump ba dump bum, ...
..., see-ee-ee
