1. I came upon a child of God

                  Am

    he was walking down the road,

                                                                                      Em

    when I asked him, "Where are you going?" This he told me :

            Em

    "I'm going down to Yasgur's farm,

                  Am

    think I'll join a rock and roll band,

                                                                 Em

    I'll camp out on the land, I'll try set my soul free."

 

              Am                     Em

We are stardust, we are golden,

                  Am                     G                     F#m

and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden.

2. Well, then can I walk beside you ?

                Am

    I have come here to lose the smog,

                                                                Em

    and I feel just like a cog in something turning.

               Em

    Well, maybe it's the time of year

          Am

    or maybe it's the time of man,

                                                                   Em

    and I don't know who I am, but life's for learning.

 

             Am                     Em

We are stardust, we are golden,

                  Am                 G                        F#m

and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden.

3. By the time I got to Woodstock,

                     Am

    they were half a million strong,

                                                                    Em

    everywhere there were songs and celebrations.

                Em

    And I dreamed I saw the bombers

                Am

    riding shotgun in the sky,

                                                         Em

    turning into butterflies above our nation.

 

             Am                     Em

We are stardust, we are golden,

                  Am                 G                          F#m

and we've got to get ourselves back to the garden.
