How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand ?
Yes, 'n' 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 years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea ?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free ?
Yes, 'n' 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.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky ?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry ?
Yes, 'n' 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.
