Song of the Day #2,408: ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’ – Emily Shepherd

emily_shepherdI’m lagging behind on my posts this week. The past few days I’ve found myself writing the entries an hour before midnight, just getting them in under the wire.

So to buy myself some time, I’m resorting to an old standby… attractive women covering Bob Dylan songs. This is the gift that YouTube keeps giving.

Today’s featured artist is Emily Shepherd, with a lovely rendition of ‘Blowin’ in the Wind.’

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, ’n’ how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, ’n’ how many times must the cannonballs 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 can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, ’n’ how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, ’n’ how many times can a man turn his head
Pretending 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?
Yes, ’n’ how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, ’n’ 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

    Perhaps you can take this a step further: Topless women singing Dylan or really topless women singing anything. 😜
