  • “Blowin’ in the wind”

    How many roads must a man walk down

    Before you call him a man?

    Yes, ‘n’ how many seas must a white dove sail

    Before she sleeps in the sand?

    Yes, ‘n’ how many times must the cannon balls fly

    Before they’re forever banned?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind,

    The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
