    Well as you know i'm prone to putting up lyrics which i feel are needed at a certain time.. i dont know why but this time round... these lyrics made me feel powerfull. made me crave to travel more.. but still... made me feel powerfull. :)

    Woodstock - Joni Mitchell

    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 going to join in a rock ’n’ roll band
    I’m going to camp out on the land
    I’m going to try an’ get my soul free
    We are stardust
    We are golden
    And we’ve got to get ourselves
    Back to the garden

    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
    I don’t know who l am
    But you know life is for learning
    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
    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

    Back to the gar - - - - - -den

    it carries on the same throughout the rest of the song i think.


    peace and love

    *edit* i just went through and re-spaced all the chords coz they appeared in the wrong place and then as soon as i clicked save changes they went back to exactly where they were in the first place?!?! so you'll have to work out by ear where the chords go coz although they are above the right lines they are not in the right place!

    *second edit* ignore first edit i sussed it out!
