Woodstock
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


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 'n' roll band
Got to get back to the land
And get my soul free
We are stardust
We're golden
And we got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

Can I walk along beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel like I'm a part of something
Turning round and round
And maybe it's the time of year
Maybe it's the time of man
And I don't know who I am
But life is for learning
We are stardust
We're 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 was the song
And the celebration
And I dreamed I saw
The bomber jet planes fly
Fire a shot into the sky
Turning into butterflies
Above our nation
We are stardust
We're golden
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

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
"I'm going down to Yasgur's farm
Gonna join in a rock and roll band
Got to get back to the land
And get my soul free"

We are stardust, we're golden
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

Can I walk along beside you
I have come here to lose the smog
And I feel like I'm a part
Of something turning round and round
And maybe it's the time of year
Maybe it's the time of man
And I don't know who I am
But life is for learning ...

We are stardust, we're 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 was the song
And the celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes
Riding shotgun in the sky
And they were turning into butterflies
Above our nation ...

We are stardust, we're golden
And we've got to get ourselves back to the garden

Joni Mitchell is the greatest musical artist of “my time” but this achingly beautiful version of Woodstock by Eva Cassidy surpasses any I’ve ever heard, including Joni’s. (Of course, the song itself came from Joni’s soul.)

I was lucky to have grown up in Bowie, MD with Eva. Remember her sitting in that big gazebo on her family property strumming and singing. Saw her perform w her high school band. They covered alot of Yes and other progressive rock. Her doing Kansas - Dust in the Wind still blows my mind 38 years later!!!

Karen Carpenter is also amazing. She doesn't have the same voice range, but her voice is beautiful. They were taken somewhere else in the universe, for other beings to enjoy their fantastic voices. They were only lended to us only for a while. The universal demand is huge.

Donna Vorbach

You were blessed to know an Angel.

Bern of Thule

I bet she is still sit there with her guitar, smiling and singing.

SuperJoseco

She will always be the best. She will always stay alive.

@Michael Knaly Michael, these are incredible memories to treasure. Guess I'm a late convert as am still finding it hard to grasp what a unique talent Eva was. Her live version of Joni's song is quite staggering in its ethereal power and beauty.

Aside from her amazing voice, no one, and I mean no one, can match her song interpretation, and that's true of every song I've heard her sing.

Larry Power

Absolutely.

Daylark

Yes!
