Blowin' in the Wind by Bob Dylan

"Blowin' in the Wind" is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1962 and unconfined on his album “The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan” in 1963. The song was introduced into the Grammy Hall of Fame In 1994. In 2004, it was positioned #14 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".


Even though it has been portrayed as a protestation song, it causes a series of melodramatic questions on the subject of peace, war and freedom. The catchphrase "The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind" has been explained as astonishingly woolly: either the answer is so evident that it is spot on and clearly in front of you or the answer is as indefinable as the wind".

Lyrics of "Blowin' in the Wind"

How many roads most 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....
