    D          G           D
1. How  many roads must a man walk down
       D        G          D
   Be-fore you call him a man?
    D        G            D
   How many seas must a white dove sail
       D         Em           A7
   Be-fore she sleeps in the sand?
             D          G             D
   Yes, and how ma-ny times must the can-non balls fly
       D            G          D
   Be-fore they're for-e-ver banned?
       G             A7        D               G
   The an-swer, my friend, is blo-win' in the wind
       Em         A7               D
   The an-swer is blo-win' in the wind

2.  Yes, and how ma-ny years can a moun-tain e-xist
        D           G            D
    Be-fore it is washed to the sea?
              D          G             D
    Yes, and how ma-ny years can some peo-ple e-xist
        D               Em          A7
    Be-fore they're al-lowed to be free?
              D          G          D
    Yes, and how ma-ny times can a man turn his head
             D            G             D
    And pre-tend that he just doe-sn't see?
       G             A7        D               G
   The an-swer, my friend, is blo-win' in the wind

3. Yes, and how ma-ny times must a man look up
       D           G       D
   Be-fore he can see the sky?
             D         G         D
   Yes, and how ma-ny ears must one man have
       D           Em          A7
   Be-fore he can hear peo-ple cry?
             D          G             D
   Yes, and how ma-ny deaths will it take 'til he knows
       D         G            D
   If too ma-ny peo-ple have died?   
       G             A7        D               G
