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,

 C            D         G              C

  1. It sure does sound better as a D 👍

  2. 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!

  3. Coda Blue

    Can you find “Masters of War”?

  4. 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…

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