Black Gold – Blowing In The Wind lyrics

How many roads must a man walk down,
Before you can 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.

- Chorus -
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,
How many years must some people exist,
Before they're allowed to be free,
How many times must a man turn his head,
And pretend he just doesn't see.

- Chorus -

How many times must a man look up,
Before he can see the sky,
How many ears must one man have,
Before he can hear people cry,
How many deaths must there be 'till he knows,
That too many people have died.

- Chorus -
