Song at 0:50-1:35
Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind
Blowing in the Wind by Bob Dylan is about the Vietnam war, peace, and the issues people face during the 1960s era. The verse I chose discusses the positions of African Americans and how they are not considered as people based on the discrimination they face and that they must be freed. Also, it brings up the fact that we cannot turn our heads and pretend to ignore the injustices people go through. The main lyric explains that all of our answers are "blowing in the wind", yet no one wants to admit or do anything about it.
Other songs by Bob Dylan include Like a Rolling Stone and Mr. Tambourine Man.
