David Crosby - Woodstock 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...
Well I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm
Gonna join in a rock 'n' roll band
Gonna get back to the land
And get my soul free

We are stardust
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
Maybe it's the time of year
Or maybe it's the time of man
I don't know who I am
But 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 was a song and a celebration
And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky
Turning into butterflies
Above our nation

We are stardust
Billion-year-old carbon
Caught in the devil's bargain
And we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
Yes we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden
Yes we've got to get ourselves
Back to the garden

David Crosby Woodstock Comments
  1. Alessandro B

    La ragazza ha una voce molto simile a joni, se possibile anche più pulita...

  2. volker allert

    sorry, but i remember the original of 69. this couldn´t possibly compete

  3. jean-jacques saussey

    beaucoup d'émotions à vous écoutez...vous avez été présent dans nos vies depuis si longtemps...

  4. David J Perkins

    Am I seeing things or is that the bass player/leader of Snarky Puppy on acoustic guitar...?

  5. That was easy

    Magnificent, read his book,truly a great life

  6. Kennyat Kwnphoto gmail

    0:45 if making this 'I'm pinching a loaf' expression made you sound better wouldn't every singer do it?

  7. Dag Souleyedblue

    There can be no doubt at this moment David Crosby makes the most beautiful music as opposed to his direct peers and this here is transcedental.

  8. MaestroZ

    Fucking brilliant.


    Beautiful haunting version, awesome harmonies

  10. Charlie Jervis

    I can't help but sing along to the Cros. Lovely.

  11. Professor Hamamoto

    Crosby can still bring it. He's passing it on to the next generation.

  12. L' Altra Musica

    I see Joni smile

  13. Danny Joshua

    A beautiful tribute to Joni.

  14. Brian Bousquet

    50 years the light still burns bright

  15. Paul Jennings

    Truely awesome. Is this in “ croz” tuning?

    Randy Bolt

    Joni tuning

  16. germ281

    so yeah.....thats really really good

  17. john bacon

    David Crosby has pissed a lot of people off.

  18. JanAid Guitars

    Thanks for share this David. You are the best boys. Blessings from a southern spanish small village. Really small ;-)

  19. Fooey Yu

    This COOL because Crosby is not FROZEN on base (period)

  20. Henk Westerik


  21. Stephen Marksberry

    Saw Davo last evening in Melbourne Florida at the King Center, of course Real music in real time. I have been a part of the California acidhead resistance since 1966, check out his 1970 collaboration with the band members of Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane! It's an acid induced si fi vision of transcendence. Dave's still rocking for peace for all mankind 🖖🏽⚡️🙏🏽⚡️🎸⚡️✊🏽⚡️

  22. joseph dato

    perfect harmony...

  23. John42ification

    Show here in Minneapolis was excellent, except that you should have ended it with this song instead of "Ohio." David, you said last night that music is supposed to be uplifting, so this would have made a much better encore, don't you agree?

  24. Jack Sprat

    This is the Joni Mitchell version (She wrote the song) and wow, these folks do it so well - the spirit of the song comes through so gentle and clear it lifts my spirits.

  25. Professor Hamamoto

    I will come to see you and this fine band on your West Coast dates.

  26. PDN11141

    Wonderful Sound.

  27. Radek Gerla

    Does anybody know what brand of guitar michael league has on the recording please ? :) Is it maybe walden , but what type ?

  28. Pete Perry

    Oh take me back to Yasgur's . Nice to see you breathe after sooooooo long. Back to the Garden bud x

  29. Tim Brown

    I am truly sorry for David, But I just do not think this is worth anything !!

  30. Anthony Demitre

    Haven't gotten goosebumps from a tune for years! Thanks!!!

  31. Radek Gerla

    anybody knows what guitar brand is the guitar which michael league has ? is it walden ? If it is , what type it is :)

  32. renato guitarist

    Troppo lenta

  33. Vaidotas Marcinkevicius

    After all these years I finally found the missing piece of my inner void

  34. John Thompson

    The little laugh from Becca reflects the utter joy she is getting from being in the very middle of the magic. At 1:03 you can see her (slightly out of focus) look over at Crosby with such a look. I don't want to taint it be describing it. Just watch. Damn this is good!

  35. vicky0408rr

    Qué delicia!! ❤❤

  36. Kat's page.

    LEGENDARY! Can't wait to see you at Parker Playhouse on May 21st!!!!

  37. Mark Birchette

    David, met you a very great while ago at what used to be called Park West Ski Resort in Utah. Summer concerts were held there. We were backstage as you were chatting with some family of mine in an M.C. that I wonthink name. You were very kind. And your music helped and still does, this once young man's life. Thank you for your music David. ✌from Utah.

  38. nowiknowuryder

    Loved this when u played at Castro Theater in SF 😜❤️😜

  39. Jack Sprat

    Wow - that was breath taking.

  40. severalseasons


  41. Graham Cole

    Great stuff...Great band, renaissance for David! Glad to see he has lost weight, that will help him to be with us longer making music!

  42. Adrian Cook

    That's some fantastic sauce there, I tell you what.

  43. Stewart Hellawell

    Love it...

  44. hashbury stumble

    Now go watch 12/8/18 at the Capitol Theater - Great versions of Laughing & Guinevere Encore of Woodstock followed by Ohio incredibly good.

  45. Keith Wigley

    Beautiful harmonies David ....great musicianship ...keep them acoming......

  46. tantraman10

    Lead female singer is doing a pretty good "Joni!!!" Beautiful version!!!

  47. TheBuch4

    We saw them in concert with our 21 and 26 year old sons and none of us wanted it to end.

  48. glendale6

    I hate that I'm so
    Unhealthy. @ 62

  49. jerry kolbe


  50. Larry Otis

    This is as beautiful as anything David has been involved in over the years. And that is saying something! The album "Here If You Listen" is a stunning collaboration of youth and experience. A Masterpiece.

  51. Ulli K.

    So beautiful!

  52. roberto zanella

    fantastic ensemble again..I hope that Leighthouse will be able to learn very well from David so to give us the new music and voices ( cappella )for the future ...and I hope they wont be as the Fleet Foxes...

  53. Eric Cherokee


  54. Angel Hadziconstanti


  55. kizmi axe

    As a rule I don't usually leave comments on You Tube, but that was quite dull.

  56. kizmi axe

    The only thing I liked about crosby stills and nash was Stills. Ick.

  57. Rodney Caupp

    OMG..., The Joni Mitchell Version.

  58. Terry JP

    A bald man with longhair? All "real" vocals done by the band not Crosby. Ego the great equalizer. You were great Mr. Crosby as your old bandmates, its over. Deal with it.

  59. Charles peterson

    That man looks just like David Crosby would look if he hadn't died 40 years ago. Hollywood never fails to amuse me. Could you dial up Rock Hudson?

  60. TaenzersTraum

    Here If you Listen: surely the album of the year, as my friend said, who is not a CSN(Y) - fan...

  61. Seventysounds


  62. Kris Peterson

    Be careful of those sliding notes. Sometimes they won't make it, especially if you're tired. Best to hit right on.

  63. Arnold Layne


  64. Hervé 76

    Une légende vivante ce mec.

  65. californialinchen

    A God and his cute little angels.

  66. Gary E. Michaels

    They have The Spirit! The Message lives on. Thanks Cowboys and Cowgirls. (Who are those guys anyway?)

  67. Jesus Albentosa

    David. Que mayor está.

  68. Ishara Fernando

    is that michael league from snarky puppy???? lmao

    bodhi heeren

    Yes indeed. They have collaborated on several occasions in recent times. Including Crosby's albums "Lighthouse" and "Here If You Listen".

  69. jerry kolbe


  70. Deana Williams


  71. lionel martin

    I found the concert quite monotone...didnt tKe me high or low...my gf felt the same...and also my friends who have seen him 4 other times.. Good.......but not like "wow" good...would have loved to have seen him play with his son and jeff.

  72. Wayne Cook

    OMG chills ran up my back !!!!

  73. Paul May

    I just saw them in Kalamazoo last night. This has to be one of the best vocal groups together today. What an awesome performance!

  74. Dave B

    We got to get ourselves back to the garden

  75. wegder

    Very nice, please continue.

  76. thomas Romano

    Talented young musicians. Nice to see the Master performing with this young talent!

  77. tkdcoach

    Gave me goosebumps, very well done

  78. John Knottenbelt

    Great to "hear & see" Cros back ! No more, snowblind ! Hats off brother !

  79. Benito Estrada

    Phew!!! beautiful, just beautiful.

  80. Michael Lanning


  81. Michael McBride

    Please Please Please put out a live DVD of this tour!

  82. TheBuch4

    I just got home from seeing them perform this in Madison, WI with my husband and sons (huge Snarky Puppy fans). Go see them if you can! David's voice is still pitch perfect and the harmonies, with hints of CSNY, will give you goosebumps. Truly talented musicians.

  83. D D

    Great harmony...

  84. GrantusM

    <3 This! Who in the Hayell thumbed-down? This is magical. Great blend of a veteran rocker and fresh new blood.

  85. Paul Honeycutt

    Who are his bandmates here?


    It tells you in the credits at the end of the video.

  86. tim tracy

    unfortunately I must say..a better editing job is in order...too much cutting...oh well we are all not Spielburg

  87. JFBrinkerMusic

    Brilliant - I guess Joni is proud!

  88. volker allert

    i am sorry to hear such a bad cover of his once dynamite music. together they were strong, alone they are lost.

  89. John Macdonald

    Good!! It is fucking awful.

  90. Piggy-218

    Only Joni and Crosby should be allowed to sing this song.really.

  91. Tim Johnson

    Brilliant 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

  92. Yvonne Vermey

    This gave me goosebumps. The whole album does, it is so freeking beautiful! Those voices are... I don't know, no words. And on the record, you can hear the talented mr Michael League doing his thing on guitar (@realsnarkpuppy) and the others are fenomanal as well. Just buy it (preferably at www.davidcrosby.com , so the artists can make sóme money)!

  93. roberto zanella

    ....Are back the new CSN&Y with Joni Mitchell incorporate ....Crosby is again there ok , I dont know who can be Still , Nash and Young ...Becca , Michelle , Michael ???? I Seem to be back at 1968...

  94. Enrico Bega

    Simply beautiful

  95. Klaus Hintler

    great performance! from a guy who actually performed at woodstock

  96. mario renato moreira gomes

    My hero! ✌️☮️👏
