                             Blowin' In The Wind - Bob Dylan
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jonas

Capo 7th

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I was amazed I did not find a version of this classic that is EXACTLY like
Dylan's (including his neat little walks) so I tried one myself. It should
be very accurat. As usual, play, comment and rate.

(Slash-)Chords are posted up here. You will find explanatory tabs of them
further down.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
G G        C/E   C/D    D/A      G
  How many roads must a man walk down,
  G        C/E   C/D  (A)->G->(E)->G
before you call him a man?
G        C/E  C/D    D/A        G
How many seas must a white dove sail,
  G        C      C/B    D/A
before she sleeps in the sand?
       G        C/E   C/D    D/A    E-F#-G
Yes 'n how many times must a cannon ball fly,
  G            C/E C/D  G
before they're for-ever banned?


    C C/B     D/A       G              C   C/G
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
    C C/B     D/A       E-F#-G
the answer is blowing in the wind.



Harmonica: same chords like chorus



G        C/E   C/D   D/A E-F#-G
How many years can a mountain exist,
  G          C/E    C/D    G
before it is washed to the sea?
G        C/E   C/D      D/A E-F#-G
How many years can some people   exist,
  G            C       C/B   D/A
before they're allowed to be free?
       G        C/E   C/D   D/A E - F# - G
Yes 'n How many times can a man turn his head,
       G            C/E  C/D     G
and pretend that he just doesn't see?



    C C/B     D/A       G              C   C/G
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
    C C/B     D/A       E-F#-G
the answer is blowing in the wind.



Harmonica: same chords like chorus



G        C/E   C/D    D/A E-F#-G
How many times must a man look up,
  G           C/E C/D G
before he can see the sky?
G        C/E  C/G  D/A E-F#-G
how many ears must one man  have,
  G           C    C/B    D/A
before he can hear people cry ?
G        C/E    C/D     D/A  E - F# - G
how many deaths will it take till he  knows,
     G        C/E    C/D  G
that too many people have died?



    C C/B     D/A       G              C   C/G
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind,
    C C/B     D/A       E-F#-G

Well done! I agree, there are so many weird versions of this simple song on this site.

A minor correction, though: the bass line going down is not "C/E C/D" but rather "C G/B". Should look like this:

G                C    G/B      D/A         G

^Thats Almost Right^ but I swear he plays:


G C G/B D/A G

I'm probably wrong but I think the 2nd bass note in the 3rd bar is higher...
I is on this CD anyway
