Woodstock


by Joni Mitchell
( Em - - - /    /    /    //)

I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him,  "where are you going?"  And this he told me
I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm
I'm gonna join in a rock 'n' roll band
I'm gonna camp on the land
And try and get my soul free

Em - - - /    / A - - - / Asus4 - - - /  x2  / Em - - - /    //  (2x)

 C1:	We are stardust, we are golden
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

A - - - / Em - - - /  x2  / G - - - / D - - - / Em - - - / A - - - //
( Em - - - /    /    /    //)

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's just the time of year
Or maybe it's the time of man
I don't know who I am, but life is for learning

 C1:	We are stardust, we are golden
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

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

 C2:	We are stardust, billion year old carbon
We are golden, caught in the devils bargain
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

A - - - / Em - - - /  x2  /  x2  /  x2  / G - - - / D - - - / Em - - - / A - - - //
( Em - - - /    /    /    //)
