  • written & produced by Joni Mitchell | from the album Ladies Of The Canyon (1970) | live in-studio from London (1970) | additional audio/video post-production by sonicboy19 | lyrics:

    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 I 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
