Blowin' in the Wind
Stevie Wonder Lyrics


You know it's blowin' (blowin')
Blowin' (blowin')
It's blowin' (yes it is now)
Whoa, yeah yeah, mhm, mmh-mhm

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man?
And how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
And how many times must those cannon balls be fired
'Fore they're forever banned?
Whoa, yeah, let me tell you that the

Answer, my friend
Is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind, whoa yeah

(Well how many years?)

Well how many years
How many years can a mountain exist (yeah before)
Before it's washed to the sea?
(I wanna know how many years?)
Now how many years
Can a man exist? (Ahh before)
Before he's allowed to be free? Yeah
(Too many years have by already now, Stevie)

Now how many times
Can a man turn his head
(He turn his head and pretend)
And he pretends that he just doesn't see?
Whoa yeah

You know the answer
Is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Whoa you know that
The answer is blowin' in the wind

Uh-huh, let me tell you
It's blowin' (blowin')
Blowin' (blowin')
It's blowin' (yes it is now)
Whoa, the answer is blowin' in the wind
And it's blowin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah
The answer is blowin'
La, la, la, la, la, la, la-la

You know that
The answer is blowin' in the wind

How many roads must a man walk down
얼마나 많은 길을 걸어가야
Before you call him a man
진정한 남자라고 불릴 수 있을까
How many seas must a white dove sail
얼마나 많은 바다를 날아가야
Before she sleeps in the sand
흰 비둘기는 모래밭에서 잠들 수 있을까
Yes, how many times must the cannon balls fly
그리고 얼마나 많은 포탄이 날아야
Before they're forever banned
영원히 포탄이 금지될까

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
그 답은 친구여 바람에 실려 불어온다네
The answer is blowin' in the wind
그 답은 바람에 실려 불어오고 있어

Yes, how many years can a mountain exist
산이 얼마나 오래 존재할 수 있을까
Before it's washed to the sea
산이 바다로 떠내려갈 때까지
Yes, how many years can some people exist
어떤 사람들은 얼마나 오래 살 수 있을까
Before they're allowed to be free
자유로워질 때까지
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head
얼마나 오래 고개를 돌리고
And pretend that he just doesn't see
그저 못 본 척 할 수 있을까

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
그 답은 친구여 바람에 실려 불어온다네
The answer is blowin' in the wind
그 답은 바람에 실려 불어오고 있어

How many times must a man look up
사람이 얼마나 많이 올려다 보아야
Before he can really see the sky?
정말로 하늘을 볼 수 있을까?
How many ears must one person have
얼마나 귀가 많아야
Before he can hear people cry?
사람들이 우는 걸 들을 수 있을까?
How many deaths will it take 'til he knows
그가 알 때까지 얼마나 많은 죽음이 일어날까
That too many people have died?
너무 많은 사람이 죽었다는 것을?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
그 답은 친구여 바람에 실려 불어온다네
The answer is blowin' in the wind
그 답은 바람에 실려 불어오고 있어

The best version of this song. Classic. R&B No.1, No.9 in the American pop charts. Recorded this as a 15 year old. Timeless. Fabulous today in 2019.

Action Duct Cleaning

Dylan's version is the standard by which others are measured, but this version does prove that we are all alike in different ways--peace and love...

David Kroll

Absolutely beautiful version of this Dylan song. Full of soul.
I could listen to Stevie and David Ruffin and Sam Cooke forever and not get bored. Three of the greatest,

Johnny Beretta

Never heard this great Bob Dylan composition sound so fantastic. I can listen to Stevie sing this over and over...

Duane Holmes

Beautiful down home version with straight uncut soul and a untouched voice.

Dtrice Brown Sugar Z

Sadly; in 2019 some of us are still asking these questions and the answers are still blowin in the wind!!!

Ced The Truth

3 words New World Order smh...

john stecher

Obama set race relations back 50 yrs.

Joey Gagliardi

@cathode follower Kudos to along with a High5 along with 2 Thumb's Up,,, could not have worded it any better than you just did in your comment.... Comment of The Year Award right here. wish you the best always. These statements are identical to my feelings.

cathode follower

Just thinking about that. Most problems today are caused by worshiping money and material goods. Capitalism causes this and even affects personal relationships, treating people as objects. People are looking for the best deal and the best return on investment in relationships and marriage. Capitalism, greed and racial hate must be eliminated to make any progress
