Blowin in the Wind (Harmonica Tab)

"Blowin' in the Wind" by Bob Dylan is a folk song that poses a series of rhetorical questions about peace, freedom, and social justice. The lyrics inquire about the nature of human suffering, war, and inequality, reflecting on the moral and ethical dilemmas faced by society. Throughout the song, Dylan asks whether these issues can ever be resolved and where the answers lie. The refrain, "The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind," suggests that the solutions to these complex problems may be elusive and intangible, perhaps lying within the collective consciousness or the forces of nature. Musically, the song features simple chord progressions and Dylan's distinctive vocal delivery, which adds to its raw and emotive impact. 

Notes:

6 6 6 -6 6 -5 6 5 -4 4 

How man-y roads must a man wa-lk down 

5 6 6 -6 6 -5 6 

be-fore you call him a man? 

5 -5 6 6 6 -6 

Yes 'n' how man-y seas 

6 -5 6 5 -4 4 

must a white do-ve sail 

5 6 5 -5 -5 5 -4 

be-fore she sleeps in the sand? 

5 -5 6 6 6 -6 

Yes 'n' how man-y times 

6 -5 6 6 5 -4 4 

must the can-non ba-lls fly 

5 6 6 -6 6 -5 6 

be-fore they're for-ev-er banned? 

5 -5 -5 5 -4 

The an-swer, my friend, 

-4 5 5 5 -4 4 

is blow-in' in the wind, 

5 -5 -5 5 -4 -4 4 -4 4 

The an-swer is blow-in' in the wind. 

these last three lines sound better when played as chords. In fact so does the rest of the tune.
