"Woodstock"

(As recorded by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young/Atlantic)
JONI MITCHELL

Well I came apon a child of God
He was walking along the road, and I asked him
"Tell me where are you going?" this he told me
Said "I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm, gonna join in a rock and roll band
Got to get back to the land and set my soul free."

We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devil's bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

Well then can I walk beside you
I have come to lose the smog
And I feel myself a cog in something turning
And maybe it's the time of year
Yes and maybe it's the time of man
And I don't know who I am
But life is for learning.

We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devil's bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devil's bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

By the time we got to Woodstock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere was a song and a celebration
And I dreamed I saw the farmer death planes riding shotgun in the sky
Turning into butterflies above our nation.

We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devil's bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
