      About "Blowin' In The Wind"

      Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" captures the combination of injustice, anger, and rebellion that defined the 1960s like no other song. Throughout the era, as the U.S. witnessed race riots and anti-war protests alongside a gruesome war which seemed determined to last indefinitely, many found themselves asking why? Why has our great nation, in a time of prosperity and world dominance, descended to such terrible strife amongst its people? As Dylan said, "The answer, my friend, is blown' in the wind." "A Change is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke is another great example of this sort of protest music.

      Lyrics for Bob Dylan - "Blowin' In The Wind"

      How 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.
