[Verse]
G                  C                     D               G
How many roads must a man walk down,
                    C               G
before you call him a man
G                  C                    D                  G
How many seas must a white dove sail,
                    C                    D
before she sleeps in the sand
                G                 C                         D                   G
Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly,
                         C           G
before they're forever banned
 
[Chorus]
C                          D            G                      C
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
                          D                      G
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist,
                    C                       G
before it is washed to the sea
                G                 C                          D           G
Yes, and how many years can some people exist,
                          C                     D
before they're allowed to be free
                G                  C                   D                    G
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head,
                                     C                  G
and pretend that he just doesn't see

C                         D              G                      C
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
                           D                     G
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Yes, and how many times must a man look up,
                           C         G
before he can see the sky
                 G                C                       D         G
Yes, and how many ears must one man have,
                           C                 G
before he can hear people cry
                 G                C                     D               G
Yes, and how many deaths will it take till he knows,
                           C                 G
that too many people have died
 
[Chorus]
