The Answer, My Friend

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.

How many years can a mountain exist
before it before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist
before they’re allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head
and pretend that he just doesn’ see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
before he can really see the sky?
How many ears must one man have
before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take ’til he knows
that too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind.

~ Bob Dylan
