Joan Baez – Joe Hill

Baez has a distinctive vocal style, with a strong vibrato.[1] Her recordings include many topical songs and material dealing with social issues.

She began her recording career in 1960, and achieved immediate success. Her first three albums, Joan BaezJoan Baez, Vol. 2, and Joan Baez in Concert all achieved gold record status, and stayed on the charts for two years.[2]

  • Blowing in the wind  Lyrics:
    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand
    How many times must the cannonballs fly
    Before they are forever banned
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the windHow many years can 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 blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the windHow many times can a man look up
    Before he sees the skyHow many ears must one woman have
    Before she can hear people cry
    How many deaths will it take till he knows
    That too many people have died
    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
    The answer is blowing in the wind
