Blowin' In The Wind Lyrics - Bob Dylan

Review The Song (2)



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 ?
Yes, 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.

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

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

Enjoyed listening to Blowin' In The Wind last night. Never did it mean as much to me as it did then. I listened to it not only with my mind, but with a heart crying out to God concerning the misery this world is in, today and felt a relief when I remembered the scripture about all the nations gathering to the Lord's holy mountain ....and that "they would learn war no more". Yes, "the answer, my friend is blow'n in the wind". The wind
of the Holy Spirit.
I love the sound of his strong voice, as he sings this song with purpose.
Thankyou, Bob. Excellent job, a real master piece!

Question marks hanging on the winds of chance | Reviewer: Steve Borrow | 3/15/08

A lot of his fans regard this as the Young Dylan’s (i.e. from his folk singer period) signature anthem. It is constructed from nine rhetorical questions, which may be reduced to a single one: how long will injustice be ignored and tolerated? Bob includes within the compass of this inquiry the degradation of human dignity, war, racism, and oppression. The answer provided is probably more illusive than might first appear. He tells his universalized friend that: “the answer is blowing in the wind”. Like leaves carried upon metaphoric winds of chance, perhaps? It takes a genius to write a song like this when barely out of his teens. Peter Paul and Mary made it world famous and its seemed to succinctly express what a lot of people thought about the 1950s.
