Blowing in the Wind
(source: "Rise Up Singing", Peter Blood and Annie Patterson, 1992.)

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 can a mountain exist
Before they're 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
And pretend that he just doesn't see

How many times must a man look up
Before he reaches 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
