How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes and how many seas must the white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the wind?
Yes and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind
How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
Yes and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes and how many times must a man turn his head, and pretend that
He just doesn't see?
How many times must a man look up
Before he can really see the sky?
Yes and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear the people cry?
Yes and how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
