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.
