VERSE 1:
G        C            G
How many roads must a man walk down
G            C          G
before you can call him a man?
G        C           G
And how many seas must a white dove sail
G        C             D
before she sleeps in the sand?
G        C              G
And how many times must the cannonballs fly
G             C       G
before they are forever banned?

CHORUS:
C         D         G              Em
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind
C         D              G
The answer is blowing in the wind (guitar noises and feedback) 

VERSE 2:
How many times must a man look up
before he can see the sky?
And how many ears must one man have
before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take 'till he knows
too many people have died?

CHORUS

w/RIFF 3:
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind
the answer is blowing in the wind

VERSE 3:
How many years can a mountain exist
before it is washed to the sea?
And how many years can some people exist 
before they're allowed to be free?
And how many times can a man turn his head
pretending he just doesn't see?

CHORUS (x2)
