Clips #24: Bob Dylan - Blowin' in the Wind (Live @ WBC TV May 1963)



Bob Dylan - Blowin' in the Wind

Para o último post de 2006, o vídeo da primeira vez que a Blowin' in the Wind foi tocada ao vivo na televisão. E já tem mais de quarenta anos, mas não há dúvidas que esta canção do Bob Dylan continua muito actual. Não sei o nome do apresentador mas percebo-o quando ele diz "I don't guess there's a better way in the world to get to know about a country and its people than to listen to its songs."
Aqui fica a letra... e feliz 2007!

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.
