VERSE:
 Gm
Well I came upon a child of God
G7      C                Csus4
He was walking along the road
                  C                    Csus4
And I asked him, tell me where are you going?
        Gm      
This he told me
Gm
Said I'm going down to Yasgur's Farm,
G7     C                      Csus4
Gonna join in a rock and roll band.
        C              Csus4           Gm
Got to get back to the land and set my soul free.


CHORUS:
        C                G
We are stardust, we are golden
        F                C
We are billion year old carbon
          Bb               F                 C    G    F
And we've got to get ourselves back to the gaaar aaar den



VERSE:
           Gm
Well then, can I walk beside you?
G7      C                    Csus4
I have come here to lose the smog,
       C              Csus4           Gm      
And I feel as I'm a cog in something turning.
Gm
And maybe it's the time of year,
G7        C                    Csus4
Yes, and maybe it's the time of man.
       C               Csus4                  Gm
And I don't know who I  am,  but life is for learning.


CHORUS:
        C                G
We are stardust, we are golden
        F                C
We are billion year old carbon
          Bb               F                 C    G    F
And we've got to get ourselves back to the gaaar aaar den


INSTRUMENTAL SOLO over these chords: Gm C Csus4  C  Csus4  Gm


CHORUS:
        C                G
We are stardust, we are golden
        F                C
We are billion year old carbon
          Bb               F                 C    G    F
And we've got to get ourselves back to the gaaar aaar den


VERSE:
        Gm
By the time we got to Woodstock,
G7       C              Csus4
We were half a million strong
      C            Csus4         Gm        
And everywhere was song and a celebration.
Gm
And I dreamed I saw the bombers, jet planes
G7      C             Csus4
Riding shotgun in the sky,
         C          Csus4
Turning into butterflies
          Gm
Above our nation.


CHORUS:
        C                G
We are stardust, we are golden
          F                C      
We are caught in a devils bargain
          Bb               F                 C    G    F
And we've got to get ourselves back to the gaaar aaar den


OUTRO: INSTRUMENTAL

Note: To me the other versions tabbed were not 
playable to the album. This one is close as I 
believe that the guitars in the original version 
were tuned up 1/2 step... Also, I noticed when 
CSN played this later in concert their intro was 
nothing like the original version. As stated I 
believe that it is difficult to get the original 
intro as there were 3 guitars doing it instead of 
just one... If someone has a better intro send it 
to me and I may change the one I have posted here.
 Thanks

But it did to 10 other people and me... To each his own... And so now I will wait for your version because I know you will do a great job.... But I am so curious as to why someone who knows how to play it would come and see what others have done... I mean since you know how to play it so well....
