Well I came upon a child of God
             A7sus                 Em7
He was walking along the road
          A7sus                                    Em7
And I asked him "Where are you going"
This he told me
"I'm going on down to Yasgurs farm
           A7sus                         Em
Gonna join in a Rock `n' Roll band
            A7sus                Em7
Gonna camp out on the land
And set my soul free"
We are stardust
We are golden
And we are billion year old Crabon
And we got to get ourselves
                   Em   G   A   G   Em
Back to the gar           -         den
Can I walk beside you?
I have come to lose the smog
And I feel to be caught in something turning
Maybe it's the time of year or maybe it's the time of man
I don't know who I am but life is for learning
By the time we got to Woodtsock
We were half a million strong
And everywhere was a song and celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers riding shotgun in the sky
Turning into butterflies above the nation
caught in the devils bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden

I recall the yellow cotton dress
                F                             Am   F  Am  C  C/B
Foaming like a wave on the ground around your knees
    Em                                 G
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
         F                                Am   F  Am  C  C/B
And the old men playing checkers by the trees.

There will be another song for me, for I will sing  it;
Cdim                            D7        Cdim      G9   G
There will be another dream for me -- someone will bring it.
I will drink the wine while it is warm,

And never let you catch me looking at the sun;
    Am             Am+7       Am7     D7  Am7

 I will take my life into my hands,      and I will use    it;

I will win the worship in their eyes, and I will lose it.

I will have the things that I desire,

And my passion flow like rivers through the sky.

I'll be thinking of you         and wondering why.
