Woodstock


Well, I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, Tell me, where are you going
This he told me
Said, I'm going down to Yasgur's Farm
Gonna 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 somethin' turning
And maybe it's the time of year
Yes and 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
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 a song and a celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bomber death planes
Riding shotgun in the sky,
Turning into butterflies
Above our nation
We are stardust, we are golden
We are caught in the devils bargain
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden



Woodstock
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
Dj vu 1970






Woodstock un brano musicale scritto dalla cantautrice statunitense Joni Mitchell ed incluso nel suo album del 1970 Ladies of the Canyon. La canzone venne notoriamente reinterpretata da Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young e divenne un inno della controcultura degli anni settanta.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young incisero e pubblicarono su singolo un arrangiamento hard rock della canzone che poi conflu nel loro album di studio Dj Vu del '70. Questa divenne ben presto la versione pi celebre e conosciuta della canzone, raggiungendo la posizione numero 11 in classifica nella Billboard Hot 100. La traccia si apre con un caratteristico riff chitarristico suonato da Stephen Stills. Stills si occup anche di cantare la parte solista accompagnato dalle armonie vocali di David Crosby e Graham Nash.

David Crosby, in un'intervista concessa per il documentario Joni Mitchell: Woman of Heart and Mind, disse che secondo lui la Mitchell aveva catturato lo spirito di Woodstock meglio di chiunque altro.
