Verse:
G        C            D        G                  
How many roads must a man walk down, Before you 
C          G    G        C           D           
call him a man, How many Seas must a white dove
G               C             D             G
sail before she sleeps in the sand, Yes and how 
     C              D          G              
many times must the cannoballs fly before they're
C       G
forever banned,

Chorus:
 C            D         G              C   
The answer my friend  is blowin in the wind
              D             G
The answer is blowin in the wind

Interlude: C D G C  D G

Verse:
        G        C           D         G
Yes and how many years can a mountian exist
             C             G            G
befroe it is washed to the sea, Yes and how
     C              D      G             
many years can some people exist before 
        C             D             G        
they're allowed to be free, Yes and how many
C           D            G         
times can a man turn his head and pretend
         C          G
that he just doesnt see

Chorus:
 C            D         G              C

The answer is blowin in the wind

        G        C           D        G
Yes and how many time must a man look up

before he can see the sky,  Yes and how 
     C         D       G            
many ears must one man have befor he can 
C           D            G        C     
hear people cry, yes and how many deaths will 
   D           G                   C     
it take til he knows that too many people have
     G
have died

 C            D         G              C   
The answer my friend  is blowin in the wind
              D             G
The answer is blowin in the wind

The pattern for the verse sounded a little off to me, so I tried G-C-G-G-C-D instead of G-C-D-G-C-G, and it worked out a lot better!

Coda Blue

Can you find “Masters of War”?

Mushu

what about the strumming pattern?

Susannah

I like to pluck instead of strum. I pluck the C string, then A, then G, then E once per chord

Nettlesprings

Try for the chorus:
C D Bm Em
C D G

Also replace the Gs at the ends of phrases with Em
Ex:
G C D
Yes and how many years can a mountian
Em G C G
Exist before it is washed to the sea

That one gay cousin

I love this song *w*

Ella

I believe the correct lyrics to the second part of the third verse is “how many ears can one person have…” I Love this song and thanks for the chords!

Jackie

It sure does sound better as a D ?

jammin

Thanks for the tab, great uke tune but needs tidying up.

Eg: 1st verse, 2nd line, 2nd chord should be D not G; and last line, last chord again should be D not G. Not got beyond that yet…

Rastaroumain

Yes! Yes! My hand was always playing D while, now I know why !
Can we get someone to correct it ?
