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 cannonballs fly
Before they are forever banned?
The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

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

And how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see the answer?
The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

How many times can man look up
Before he sees the sky?
How many years must one person have
Before he can hear people cry?

And how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind
Oh, the answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind
