Well, I came upon a child of God
He was walking along the road
And I asked him, ÚFFFFD2Tell where are you going?ÚFFFFD3
This he told me

Said, ÚFFFFD2IÚFFFFD5m 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.ÚFFFFD3

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

ÚFFFFD2Well, then can I walk beside you?
I have come to lose the smog,
And I feel like I'm a cog in something 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.ÚFFFFD3

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 caught in the devilÚFFFFD5s bargain,
And we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
