"Blowin' in the Wind" as written by and Billy/rich Sherrill....
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
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 years can a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
How many years must some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
An' how many times can a man turn his head,
An' pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

An' how many times must a man look up
Before he see the sky?
An' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
An' how many deads [sic] 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.
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind
