Woodstock Joni Mitchell
I[Em] came upon a child of God
He was wa[A]lking along the road
And I asked him "Where are you going?"
And th[Em]is he told me
"I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm
I'm gonna join [A]in a rock and roll band
I'm gonna camp out on the land
And try and get my s[Em]oul free"
We are sta[A]rdust, we are golden
And we've g[Em]ot to get ours[D]elves back to the [Em]gar[A]de[Em]n
[Em]Huy do do do do do do huy do do do do do do
Huy do do do do do do huy do do do
Then can I walk beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel to be a cog in something turning
Well maybe it is just the time of year
Or maybe it's the time of man
And I don't know who I am
But you know life is for learning ...CHORUS #1
By the time we got to Woodstock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere there was song and celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation ...
We are stardust, billion year old carbon
We are golden, caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden
NOTE: This are the piano chords for guitar, more or less. The CSNY
version is quite different- I can't figure that version out at this point.
