Blowing in the wind

H ow 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 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 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.

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.

  1. Welcome back! I haven’t posted on your blog but have been following it for months. I’d wondered where you were. Just taking the opportunity to let you know that your pictures have inspired me to start taking photos of my neighborhood.

  2. One of my favorites. I played guitar and sang it to my children until they started covering their ears with their little hands saying “no, no, please no blowin’ in the wind”.

    Why? I don’t know but I think that the answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind.

    Your posts always take me to some memory or a good place, a thought-provoking place. Haven’t been reading much but hope to get back in the loop soon.
