Woodstock

Guitar chords transcribed by Harlan Thompson
Tuning: EADGBE   "Joni" Tuning: E55545

 Em
I came upon a child of God

         A
He was walking along the road


And I asked him "Where are you going?"

      Em
And this he told me


"I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm

               A
I'm gonna join in a rock and roll band


I'm gonna camp out on the land

                    Em
And try and get my soul free"



CHORUS #1:
          A
We are stardust, we are golden

           Em            D                 Em A Em
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

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 ...

CHORUS #2:

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.
