Three Days of Peace & Music


Well I came upon a child of God,
he was walking along the road
And I asked him tell where are you going,
this he told me
(He) said, I'm going down to Yasgur's farm,
going to join in a rock and roll band.

Got to get back to the land,
 and set my soul free.


We are stardust, we are golden,
we are billion year old carbon,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

Well, then can I roam beside you?
I have come to lose the smog.


And I feel myself a cog in something turning.
And maybe it's the time of year,


yes, said maybe it's the time of man.
And I don't know who I am but life is for learning.


We are stardust, we are golden,
we are billion year old carbon,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.


By the time we got to Woodstock, 
we were half a million strong,


And everywhere was song and celebration.




And I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes 
riding shotgun in the sky,
Turning into butterflies above our nation.


We are stardust, we are golden, 
we are caught in the devil's bargain,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden..
("Woodstock" Written by Joni Mitchell, 
Performed by Crosby Stills & Nash)


Happy 43rd Anniversary!!
