Bob Dylan is Blowing in the wind

Blowing in the wind



En abril de 1962, en el Greenwich Village de Nueva York, Dylan dio un pequeño discurso antes de tocar una de sus nuevas canciones. "Ésta no es una canción protesta ni nada de eso porque yo no escribo canción protesta", dijo. A continuación interpretó los versos primero y tercero de la inacabada Blowing in the wind.
Grabada el 9 de julio de 1962 para su segundo disco, esta canción se convirtió en la primera composición importante de Bobby. Además es la mejor (a la par que conocida) canción protesta de toda la historia...
Su letra dice así:
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.
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Drugs are just bad, you should try to use Herbal Alternatives as a temporary replacement to loose the dependance!
