G              C                     D             G

How many roads must a man walk down

G               C               G (2)
Before you call him a man?

             G             C                    D             G
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail

G                 C                  D (2)
Before she sleeps in the sand?

          G                C                       D             G
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly

G                     C           G (2)
Before they're forever banned?

How many years can a mountain exist

      G           C                  G (2)
Before it's washed to the sea?

             G              C                       D        G
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist

     G                   C                 D (2)
Before they're allowed to be free?

            G              C                 D                  G       

Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,

             G          C                 G (2)
And pretend he just doesn't see?

How many times must a man look up

      G               C          G (2)
Before he can see the sky?

            G               C              D             G
Yes, 'n' how many ears must one man have

     G               C                D (2)
Before he can hear people cry?

             G               C                D                G
Yes, 'n' how many deaths will it take till he knows

       G               C                G (2)
That too many people have died?
