BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Woodstock:

 

Woodstock

Well I came across a child of God, he was walking along the road
and I asked him tell where are you going, this he told me:
Well, I’m going down to Yasgur's farm, going to join in a rock and roll band.
Got to get back to the land, set my soul free.
We are stardust, we are golden, we are billion year old carbon,
and we got to get ourselves back to the garden.

Well, then can I walk beside you? I have come to lose the smog.
And I feel like I'm a cog in something turning.
And maybe it's the time of year, yes, and maybe it's the time of man.
And I don't know who I am but life is for learning.
We are stardust, we are golden, we are billion year old carbon,
and we 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 jet planes riding shotgun in the sky,
turning into butterflies above our nation.

We are stardust, we are golden, we caught in the devil’s bargain,
and we got to get ourselves back to the garden.
 

 CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG LYRICS
                 HELPLESS LYRICS

                 
There is a town in north Ontario,
With dream comfort memory to spare,
And in my mind
    I still need a place to go,
All my changes were there.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Baby can you hear me now?
The chains are locked
    and tied across the door,
Baby, sing with me somehow.

Blue, blue windows behind the stars,
Yellow moon on the rise,
Big birds flying across the sky,
Throwing shadows on our eyes.
Leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless.


 

 

 

Country Girl

Winding paths through tables and glass, first flowers bloom.
Now watch the Summer pass so close to you.
Too late to keep the change, too late to pay, no time to stay the same, too young to leave.

“No pass out” sign on the door set me thinking.
Are waitresses paying the price of their winking?
While stars sit at bars and decide what they're drinking.
They stop by to die because it's faster than sinking.

Too late to keep the change, too late to pay, no time to stay the same,
too late to keep the change, too late to pay, no time to stay the same, too young to leave.

Find out that now was the answer to answers that you gave later.
She did the things that we all did before now but who forgave her?
If I could stand to see her crying, I would tell her not to care.
When she learns of all your lying, will she join you there?

Country girl I think you’re pretty, got to make you understand.
Have no lovers in the city, let me be your country man.
Got to make you understand, got to make you understand, country girl...


Carry On

One morning I woke up and I knew that you were gone.
A new day, a new way, I knew I should see it along.
Go your way, I'll go mine and carry on.

The sky is clearing and the night has gone out.
The sun, he come, the world is all full of light.
Rejoice, rejoice, we have no choice but to carry on.

The fortunes of fables are able to sing the song.
Now witness the quickness with which we get along.
To sing the blues you've got to live the tunes and carry on.

Carry on, love is coming, love is coming to us all.

Where are you going now my love? Where will you be tomorrow?
Will you bring me happiness? Will you bring me sorrow?
Oh, the questions of a thousand dreams, what you do and what you see,
lover, can you talk to me?

Girl, when I was on my own, chasing you down,
what was it made you run, trying your best just to get around?
The questions of a thousand dreams, what you do and what you see,
lover, can you talk to me?
 

 

 

Everybody I Love You

Know you got to run, know you got to hide.
Still there is a great life engrained deep within your eyes.
Open up, open up, baby, let me in.
You expect for me to love you when you hate yourself my friend la, la, la...

Everybody I love you, everybody I do, oh, yes.
Though your heart is an answer, I need your love to get me through,
oh yeah, I really do now.
When I tell you I love you, when I tell you, you can believe that it's true, oh, yes it is.

Everybody I love you, everybody I do, oh, yes I really do now…


For What It’s Worth


There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.
There's a man with a gun over there, telling me I've got to beware.
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down.

There's battle lines are being drawn. Nobody's right if everybody's wrong.
Young people speaking their minds are getting so much resistance from behind.
Time we stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down.

What a field day for the heat. A thousand people in the street
singing songs and carrying signs, mostly say "hooray for our side."
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down.

Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep.
It starts when you're always afraid. Step outta line, the man come and take you away.
We better stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down.
We better stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down.
We better stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down.
We better stop, hey, what's that sound, everybody look, what's going down…


4+20

Four and twenty years ago, I come into this life,
the song of a woman and a man who lived in strife.
He was tired of being poor and he wasn't into selling door to door
and he worked like the devil to be more.

A different kind of poverty now upsets me so.
Night after sleepless night, I walk the floor and I want to know- why am I so alone?
Where is my woman can I bring her home? Have I driven her away? Is she gone?

Morning comes to sunrise and I'm driven to my bed.
I see that it is empty and there's devils in my head.
I embrace the many colored beast. I grow weary of the torment, can there be no peace?
And I find myself just wishing that my life would simply cease.

Heart Of Gold

I want to live, I want to give, I've been a miner for a heart of gold.
It's these expressions I never give
that keep me searching for a heart of gold and I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold and I'm getting old.

I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood, I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold.
I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line
that keeps me searching for a heart of gold and I'm getting old..
Keeps me searching for a heart of gold and I'm getting old.

Keep me searching for a heart of gold, you keep me searching and I'm growing old.
Keep me searching for a heart of gold, I've been a miner for a heart of gold.

 

Guinevere

Guinevere had green eyes like yours, my lady, like yours
when she'd walk down through the garden in the morning after it rained.
Peacocks wandered aimlessly underneath an orange tree. Why can't she see me?

Guinevere drew pentagrams like yours, my lady, like yours
late at night when she thought that no one was watching at all on the wall.
She shall be free.

As she tones her gaze down the slope to the harbor where I lay, anchored for the day.
Guinevere had golden hair like yours, my lady, like yours,
streaming out when we'd ride through the warm wind down by the bay yesterday.
Seagulls circling endlessly, I sing in silent harmony. We shall be free.


Just A Song Before I Go

Just a song before I go, to whom it may concern.
Travelling twice the speed of sound, it's easy to get burned.
When the shows were over, we had to get back home,
and when we opened up the door I had to be alone.
She helped me with my suitcase, she stands before my eyes,
driving me to the airport and to the friendly skies.
Going through security I held her for so long.
She finally looked at me in love, and she was gone.
Just a song before I go, a lesson to be learned.
Travelling twice the speed of sound, it's easy to get burned.

 

Love The One You’re With

If you're down, and confused and you don't remember, who you're talking to.
Concentration slips away cause your baby is so far away.
And there's a rose in a fisted glove, and the eagle flies with the dove.
And if you can't be, with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with,
love the one you're with, love the one you're with, love the one you're with.

Don't be angry, don't be sad, don't sit crying over good times you had.
There's a girl, right next to you and she's just waiting for something to do.
And there's a rose in a fisted glove, and the eagle flies with the dove.
And if you can't be, with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with,
love the one you're with, love the one you're with, love the one you're with.

Turn your heartache right into joy. She's a girl and you're a boy.
So get it together, make it nice and you won’t need any more advice.
And there's a rose in a fisted glove, and the eagle flies with the dove.
And if you can't be, with the one you love, honey, love the one you're with,
love the one you're with, love the one you're with, love the one you're with.


Mr. Tambourine Man


Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
in the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you.

Though I know that evening’s empire has returned into sand, vanished from my hand,
left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet, I have no one to meet
and the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade into my own parade,
cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it.

Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
in the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you.



Ohio

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming, we're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming, four dead in Ohio.
Gotta get down to it, soldiers are cutting us down. Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her and found her dead on the ground?
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it, soldiers are cutting us down. Should have been done long ago.

Tin soldiers and Nixon's coming, we're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming, four dead in Ohio,
four dead in Ohio, four dead in Ohio, four dead in Ohio, how many more?
Four dead in Ohio, four dead in Ohio, four dead in Ohio, home many more?


Old Man

Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.
Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.

Old man, look at my life, twenty-four and there's so much more.
Live alone in a paradise that makes me think of two.
Love lost, such a cost, give me things that don't get lost,
like a coin that won't get tossed, rolling home to you.
Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you,
I need someone to love me the whole day through.
Have one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes, run around the same old town.
Doesn't mean that much to me to mean that much to you.
I've been first and last, look at how the time goes past.
But I'm all alone at last, rolling home to you.
Old man, take a look at my life, I'm a lot like you,
I need someone to love me the whole day through.
Have one look in my eyes and you can tell that's true.

Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.
Old man, look at my life, I'm a lot like you were.




Our House  


I'll light the fire, you put the flowers in the vase that you bought today.
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
play your love songs all night long for me, only for me.

Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes, everything is good.
Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated by the
sunshine through them, fiery gems for you, only for you.

Our house is a very, very fine house with two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard,
now everything is easy cause of you and our la, la, la…

Our house is a very, very fine house with two cats in the yard, life used to be so hard,

Make you crazy and old before your time
And the difference betweem me and you

                      If they told you, you would cry
                                                               Bm   G   A
                      So just look at them and sigh

                      And know they love you...
 
          And you of tender years
          Can't know the fears that your elders grew by
          And so please help them with your youth
          They seek the truth before they can die
 
          Teach your parents well
          Their children's hell will slowly go by
          And feed them on your dreams
          The one they picks, the one you'll know by
 
                      Don't you ever ask them why
                      If they told you, you would cry
                      So just look at them and sigh
                      And know they love you...

It's getting to the point
Where I'm no fun anymore
I am sorry
Sometimes it hurts so badly
I must cry out loud
I am lonely
I am yours, you are mine
You are what you are
And you make it hard

Remember what we've said and done and felt
about each other
Oh babe, have mercy
Don't let the past remind us of what we are not now
I am not dreaming.
I am yours, you are mine
You are what you are
And you make it hard

Tearing yourself away from me now
You are free and I am crying
This does not mean I don't love you
I do, that's forever, yes and for always
I am yours, you are mine
You are what you are
And you make it hard

Something inside is telling me that
I've got your secret. Are you still listening?
Fear is the lock, and laughter the key to your heart
And I love you.

I am yours, you are mine, you are what you are
And you make it hard
And you make it hard

Friday evening, Sunday in the afternoon
What have you got to lose?
Tuesday mornin', please be gone I'm tired of you.
What have you got to lose?
Can I tell it like it is? Help me I'm sufferin'
Listen to me baby-Help me I'm dyin'
It's my heart that's a sufferin', it's a dyin'
That's what I have to lose
I've got an answer
I'm going to fly away
What have I got to lose?
Will you come see me
Thursdays and Saturdays?
What have you got to lose?

Chestnut brown canary
Ruby throated sparrow
Sing a song don't be long
Thrill me to the marrow
Voices of the angels ring around the moonlight
Asking me, said she so free
How can you catch the sparrow?
Lacy, lilting, lady, losing love, lamenting

Change my life, make it right
Be my lady.
Doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo

Que linda me la traiga Cuba,
la reina de la Mar Caribe.
Cielo sol no tiene sangre ahi,
y que triste que no puedo vaya,

4+20 years ago
I come into this life
The song of a woman
And a man who lived in strife
He was tired of being poor
And he wasn't into selling door to door
And he worked like the devil to be more
 
A different kind of poverty now upsets my soul
Night after sleepless night
I walk the floor and I want to know
Why am I so alone?
Where is my woman can I bring her home?
Have I driven her away?
Is she gone?
 
Morning comes to sunrise
And I'm driven to my bed
I see that it is empty
And there's devils in my head
I embrace the many colored beast
I grow weary of the torment
Can there be no peace?
And I find myself just wishing 
that my life would simply cease

HELPLESSLY HOPING
(Stills)

Helplessly hoping
Her harlequin hovers nearby
Awaiting a word
Gasping at glimpses
Of gentle true spirit
He runs, wishing he could fly
Only to trip at the sound of good-bye

Wordlessly watching
He waits by the window
And wonders
At the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams
He worries
Did he hear a good-bye? Or even hello?

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

Stand by the stairway
You'll see something
Certain to tell you confusion has its cost
Love isn't lying
It's loose in a lady who lingers
Saying she is lost
And choking on hello

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

 

 

WOODEN SHIPS

Stills: If you smile at me, I will understand
'Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
in the same language.

Crosby: I can see by your coat, my friend,
you're from the other side,
There's just one thing I got to know,
Can you tell me please, who won?

Stills: Say, can I have some of your purple berries?

Crosby: Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now,

 haven't got sick once.

Stills: Probably keep us both alive.

Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy,
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be,
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be,
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy...
Horror grips us as we watch you die,
All we can do is echo your anguished cries,
Stare as all human feelings die,
We are leaving - you don't need us.

Go, take your sister then, by the hand,
lead her away from this foreign land,
Far away, where we might laugh again,
We are leaving - you don't need us.

And it's a fair wind, blowin' warm,
Out of the south over my shoulder,
Guess I'll set a course and go...

* Tune the low "E" (or 6th string) down to a "D" so that the 2nd fret on
this string is an "E" 
* Chord diagrams below show strings from left to right starting with the
low E string. 
 
x = do not play 0 = play string "open" a number = the fret where you put
your finger. 
EXAMPLE: xx0232 is a "D" and x02220 is an "A" chord. 
 
This is pretty much JT's version verbatim. You will need to figure out how
to pick it. 
This is for finger-style playing. This would be very difficult to play
correctly using a pick.
 
(1) 0xx010 (2) 0x023x (3) 5xx03x (4) 3x301x (5) x3x03x 
(6) x2x030 (7) x3201x (8) 0xx232 (9) 3x3x10 (10) x0x010 
 
 
INTRO: slowly pick chord (2) 0x023x, in this sequence: (Low E, 3, 2, 0) Let
the last 0 linger. 
 
VERSE 1:
Well I ca(1)me upon a ch(2)ild of God, he was walk(3)ing along the ro(4)ad
And I ask(3)ed him, "Brother where you go(4)in?" This he told m(2)e
Said "I'm go(5)ing dow(6)n to Yas(2)gur's farm, gonna jo(3)in in a rock 'n
roll ba(4)nd,
Gonna ca(3)mp out on the la(4)nd, try to set my soul fr(2)ee"
 
CHORUS 1:
We are star(3)dust, w(4)e are gold(2)en, we are bill(3)ion year old car(2)bon,
And we go(4)t to get our-selv(7)es back to the ga(3)r - ar(4)r - de(2)n… 
 
VERSE 2: (Watch out. Line 4 also has chord 10 played just as you sing "is")
Well, then ca(1)n I walk besi(2)de you, I've co(3)me to lose my sm(4)og,
Now I fe(3)el as if I'm cau(4)ght in something turn(2)ing. . .
Yes and may(1)be it's the time of ye(2)ar, and may(3)be it's the time of
ma(4)n,
Now, I do(3)n't know who I a(4)m, but life is(10) for learn(2)ing. . .
 
CHORUS 2: (Here, on line 1, play chords 5 and 6 instead of chord 3 from
Chorus 1)
We are star(3)dust, w(4)e are gold(2)en, we are bill(5)ion ye(6)ar old
car(2)bon,
And we go(4)t to get our-selv(7)es back to the ga(3)r - ar(4)r - de(2)n… (1)
 
VERSE 3: 
By the time(8) we got to Wood(1)stock, we were ha(3)lf a million strong(4),
And ev(3)erywhere was a so(4)ng and a cel(10)ebra(2)tion. . .
And I dre(1)amed I saw the bomb(2)er death-ships flying shot(3)gun in the
sk(4)y, yeah
Turning in(3)to butter(4)flies abo(10)ve our na(2)tion. . .
 
CHORUS 3:
We are star(5)dust, and w(6)e are gold(2)en, we are cau(5)ght in the
dev(6)il's bargain(2), 
And we go(4)t to get ourselves(7) back to the ga(3)r - ar(4)r - de(2)n.
'Cause we are star(9)dust and we are gold(2)en, we are bill(5)ion ye(6)ar
old car(2)bon
And we go(4)t to get ourselves(7) back to the ga(3)r - ar(4)r - de(2)n…
(1)… (see next line) 
 
(Right after playing chord (1) above, play chord (2) and pluck the low "E"
at end and let fade)
