Blowin`in the wind...



Mary Travers, integrante do trio de música folk Peter, Paul and Mary, morreu nesta quarta-feira, aos 72 anos.

Foi no começo dos anos 60 quando Travers, Peter Yarrow, e Noel Paul Stookey lançaram o popular trio, que integrou a política em suas canções. "If I had a hammer" tornou-se hino em prol da igualdade. "Lemon tree", "Leaving on a jet plane" e "Puff (the magic dragon)" foram outros de seus sucessos.

O trio promoveu Bob Dylan no início de sua carreira e interpretou "Blowin`in the wind" durante a marcha de agosto de 1963, em Washington.

Peter, Paul and Mary conquistaram o público americano e se tornaram as estrelas mais populares do renascimento do folk.

Blowin´in the wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
How many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they`re forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind
The answer is blowin in the wind.

How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
How many years can some people exist
Before they`re allowed to be free?
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.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind
The answer is blowin in the wind.
The answer is blowin in the wind.

Triste...
Lembro de ouvir essa versão de Blowing in the Wind na infância, no Chile. Minha mãe gostava deles.
