45 Years ago ‘Woodstock Music & Arts Fair' took place August 15-18, 1969

"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!”

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…

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….”
