BLOWING IN THE WIND


Bob Dylan


Capo on 2


[C][C/b][D][D][G][G][C][C]

[C][C/b][D][D][G][C][G][G][G][C][G]


[G] How many [C] roads must a [G] man walk down

[G] Before you [C] call him a [G] man?

[G] How many [C] seas must a [G] white dove sail

[G] Before she [C] sleeps [C/b] in the [D] sand?

[G] How many [C] times must the [G] cannon balls fly

[G] Before they're [C] forever [G] banned?

The [C] an-[C/b]-swer, my [D] friend, is [G] blowin' in the [C] wind,

The [C] an-[C/b]-swer is [D] blowin' in the [G] wind. [C][G][G][C][G]


[G] How many [C] years can a [G] mountain exist

[G] Before it's [C] washed to the [G] sea?

[G] How many [C] years can some [G] people exist

[G] Before they're [C] allowed [C/b] to be [D] free?

[G] How many [C] times can a [G] man turn his head,

[G] Pretending he [C] just doesn't [G] see?

The [C] an-[C/b]-swer, my [D] friend, is [G] blowin' in the [C] wind,

The [C] an-[C/b]-swer is [D] blowin' in the [G] wind. [C][G][G][C][G]


[G] How many [C] times must a [G] man look up

[G] Before he can [C] see the [G] sky?

[G] How many [C] ears must [G] one man have

[G] Before he can [C] hear [C/b] people [D] cry?

[G] How many [C] deaths will it [G] take till he knows

That [G] too many [C] people have [D] died?

The [C] an-[C/b]-swer, my [D] friend, is [G] blowin' in the [C] wind,

The [C] an-[C/b]-swer is [D] blowin' in the [G] wind. [C][G][G][C][G]


[G][C][G]


Bob Dylan has played this song in many different keys and tempos over the years. This is the version that works best for me.
