Abstract
I expressed the desire to analyse the soundtrack of the documentary called Woodstock
because I love the sixties. I first wanted to produce a work about The Beatles, a group I love
and I know very well. Then I wanted to discover some others groups and events of the sixties,
and I finally found the DVD Woodstock. After having seen it, I found my subject.
From the 15th to the 18th of August, 1969, the festival called Woodstock Music and Art
Fair took place. The stage was located in the middle of Max Yasgur’s fields, in Bethel, 68
miles northeast of the town of New York. Some songs, like Soul Sacrifice performed by
Santana or With A Little Help From My Friends played by Joe Cocker, became legendary and
propelled music bands, which would certainly not have known success otherwise, to brilliant
careers.
I have tried to write my TM, in which I use the lyrics of songs and the visual elements
of the film to support what I put forward, as a guide that can be read alongside the
documentary film Woodstock – Three Days of Peace and Music1 under Michael Wadleigh’s
monitoring. This documentary, shot during the festival, lasts about three hours, with more
than two and a half hours of music. It gives a real account of what happened at the Woodstock
Festival. Despite having produced a great work, Michael Wadleigh’s film can only be an
overview of the events. My opinion is that the atmosphere of the festival and the events had
become too huge to be represented in a film. We will observe that the order of the songs in the
film is not the same as the line-up of the festival, and Michael Wadleigh built his film in order
to captivate the spectators, as if they were living the preparations of the events, then the
arrival of the festival-goers, and finally three days and two nights of concerts, which finished
with Jimi Hendrix on stage on Monday morning, because the festival lasted a half-day more
than it was planned.
The people who saw this documentary in US cinemas from 1970, the year of the
release of the film, were still dancing after the first music started! Firstly, this documentary
shows the preparations of the festival and then the performances, always intersected with
interviews from the point of view of many different people, so many different ways to review
the events. Secondly, all the songs were recorded during the festival, with the exception of the
last one called Woodstock played by Crosby, Stills & Nash, recorded in 1970. At last all the
elements, the interviews and performances in the film, are original and authentic.
Nearly fifty years later after this event, I personally feel that through this documentary
we can listen to great songs, great bands, and relive a bit of the Woodstock Experience, which
was, I suppose, one of the most important in the hippie counter-culture era but seems to be so
far away from now, nearly unreal.

1 Introduction
1.1 Before Woodstock
Woodstock Festival was the first event ever with such a big public audience. More
than half a million people took part in the festival, one of the most important causes of its
renown. Despite its success, this festival would never have been possible without other
previous events. The first main one is the Monterey Pop Festival, which took place from June
16th to June 18th, 1967, and had an estimated audience of up to 90,000 people. It was on stage
in Monterey that people were able to see some of the first major appearances of Jimi Hendrix,
The Who or Janis Joplin, who would be at Woodstock as well; it is on that occasion that
people could also see other excellent performances such as those by Jefferson Airplane,
Country Joe and the Fish, Canned Heat and Ravi Shankar, all at Woodstock as well. Some
other really good bands performed, like Otis Redding, The Mamas & the Papas, Quicksilver
Messenger Service, The Byrds or even Grateful Dead.
It was at the time of this Monterey Pop Festival that
Jimi Hendrix made an apparition which became mythical:
Brian Jones, founding member of The Rolling Stones, who
died in 1969, introduced Jimi Hendrix as « the most
exciting guitar player I’ve ever heard »2, then Hendrix
came on stage and the show began; during the concert, he
played the guitar behind his head, behind his back, between
his legs, with his teeth and finally, during Wild Thing, he
mimicked masturbation in front of a loudspeaker with his
guitar, which had finished sprayed with petrol, set on fire
and smashed: a true demonstration of the way to play
guitar. This was the most popular Hendrix show at that
time. The guitarist of The Who, Pete Townshend, is known
for smashing guitars and moreover, he smashed his guitar
at the End of My Generation during the Monterey Pop
Festival as well. In the documentary, we see he gives it to a
member of the audience

Figure 1: Jimi Hendrix at
Monterey Pop Festival

One year after the Monterey Pop Festival and one year before the Woodstock Festival,
the first Miami Pop Festival was held. It took place from May 18th to May 19th, 1968. This
festival had an estimated audience of 100,000 people during the two-day event, even if rain
gate-crashed the concerts. Here too, Jimi Hendrix turned up again, and it was a nice occasion
to see other artists as well: Chuck Berry, Three Dog Night or even Steppenwolf were present.
This first edition was promoted by Michael Lang, who promoted the Woodstock Festival as
well. A second edition took place at the end of December of the same year; it was not
promoted by Michael Lang but Tom Rounds.

1.2 Woodstock Music and Art Fair
Michael Lang,
John Roberts, Joel
Rosenman and Arlie
Kornfeld organized the
only real first and last
Woodstock
Festival
ever
organized.
Michael Lang had Figure 2: John Roberts/Joel Rosenman/Artie Kornfeld/Michael Lang
previously promoted the Miami Pop Festival, one of the first with more than 100,000
participants, which took place in May 1968, as said previously. Six months after this
experience, they began to organize the Woodstock Festival. This took nine months’ work;
they developed the concept of a major festival to celebrate the sixties through the power of
music.
The producers wanted a line-up with artists whom everyone loved at this time, but not
only this; they also wanted some who were not famous but pleasant and funny as well, like
Sha Na Na, we see them in the film. Some of the artists, for example The Who, Janis Joplin,
Jimi Hendrix or Jefferson Airplane, were certain to take part in the festivities, some others
almost missed the chance to play during the festival, like Santana, who found that Woodstock
was too far from San Francisco, or Ten Years After, which did not plan to join the event,
because their agent found the offer uninteresting. Fortunately, both of these bands finally
agreed to take part in the Woodstock Festival, probably because of the other artists whose
participation was certain.
In the film3, we can hear Michael Lang and Arlie Kornfeld, with a flower in his hand,
talking about the festival finances, which were bad; the whole festival cost more than two
million dollars. At the time of the festival, this money was paid by their developer. They were
expecting that ticket sales would pay back a big part of the loan, but the biggest part of the
crowd present there did not buy tickets. This situation of indebtedness implies normally a
state of stress; but we can see them being unconcerned about money, just standing, happy,
watching what was happening. Music was, is and always will be a key-way to develop
communication and love, and it should not make a big fuss about money. So they were right, I
think, not to worry about that. They still could not imagine that the rights they had on the
festival would make the debts disappear fully!

1.3 Woodstock – Three Days of Peace & Music
Woodstock is a 1970 documentary directed by Michael
Wadleigh. He received an Academy Award for Documentary Feature
at the 1971 ceremony for this film. The film lasts one hundred and
eighty eight minutes, with performances for one hundred and fifty
minutes! The cameramen were a team of twelve people, divided into
four groups. Each team went away in his own way to shoot what they
had previously organized. For example, some of them went to town in
the morning to get impressions or opinions about the event. Others
sounded out the crowd of festival-goers, or better still went on stage to
film the artists who were performing. Then they came back at midday
to talk together about what they had filmed, and in the afternoon they
set off again, in the evening as well. They did that day after day, night
after night.

Figure 3: Woodstock
– Three Days of
Peace and Music- the
director’s cut’s cover

This documentary does not last about two hours, like
most films at this time and nowadays. There was neither
scenario, nor make-up; the shooting of this film was based on
feelings: cameramen could not watch what they were shooting
on a screen, or shoot a scene again. They just filmed what was
happening, and I imagine that it is largely this way of shooting
which gives vivacity and vitality to the film, that make us feel as
if we were there.
If it starts to rain, a normal shooting team would put
Figure 4: Michael Wadleigh away the equipment and wait, but as we can observe it in the
film that is not what the shooting team did there. There were some cameramen in the rain, in
the middle of the crowd, sliding in the mud. It proves that there was a sort of connection
between all the people who took part in the Woodstock Festival. Thanks to these things,
which nearly bring the spectator to Woodstock when he watches the film: you seem to be
more than forty years earlier. Another instance would be the scene during Canned Heat’s
performance, when an unknown person appears and takes a cigarette from a packet in Bob
Hite’s4 pocket. After that you find yourself sitting and taking pills next to some hippies, then
you seem to be next to the lake entirely bare in front of naked people who are swimming and
singing, or inside portable toilets « PORT-O-SAN ». It is not just a film taken in front of the
stage and shooting artists, it is an experience that we can relive.

2 Analysis of the Documentary
2.1 Choices made for the Soundtrack of the Film
As said previously, the documentary lasts one hundred and eighty eight minutes. I
divided the two and a half hours of performances into twenty five songs, played by seventeen
different artists. Because of the magnitude of the work involved, I decided to analyse half of
the songs, exactly twelve, which I think are the more representative of the work of Michael
Wadleigh.5 I had several criteria to choose the songs, I did not simply want to choose music
which was a smash hit, or the most well known.
In the first place, I took one song per artist maximum: if possible the one which is the
more representative of the interests he displays in his lyrics. I did not take only pieces of
music that I really love; otherwise I would take them all. I chose music with a strict minimum
of content in the lyrics, not only a good rhythm. The exceptions are Soul Sacrifice by Santana
and Star Spangled Banner by Jimi Hendrix; these are songs without lyrics that have as much
meaning as ones with lyrics. If this were not the case, I do not think that Michael Wadleigh
would include them in his documentary. Finally, and maybe the most important point in my
opinion, even if the artist did not say a word during his performance, there must have a
message. This is what I want to show to you.

2.2 Crosby, Stills & Nash – Long Time Gone
After a couple of words about what Sidney Westerfeld saw during the festival, an
owner of an antique cavern in New York State,6 Michael Wadleigh decided to place Long
Time Gone by Crosby, Stills & Nash as the first song. It starts with these words:
« It’s been a long time coming
It’s going to be a long time gone »
These words could represent waiting for the festival, in parallel with the pictures in the
film during the song, which show staff members of the festival preparing it.
I consider it was a very good choice to have placed this song in first position, because
from the visual point of view, the film shows the organization of and preparations for the
festival, including the assembly of the infrastructure, like the stage or the towers. This
enhances the investment of time by staff members, and from the auditory point of view, we
can hear in parallel this song, whose main themes are time and expression. I guess that time is
in agreement with waiting for this event which would, according to hippies, stop the dark
hours of the United States of America, like Vietnam War or the disparity between ethnic
groups. Expression represents action; to organize and participate in the festival for example.
Of course they did not stop the Vietnam War, but is it a reason to remain silent?
« Speak out, you got to speak out against the madness
You got to speak your mind if you dare [...]
But you know
The darkest hour is always
Always just before the dawn »
In my opinion, these lyrics represent accurately the opinions of those present at the
Woodstock Festival; even if it appears to be a long and sad time, you have got to keep your
mind positive and to express what you think is right, to appreciate the true value of our world.

2.3 Canned Heat - Going Up to the Country
The hippie counter-culture is in relation with a lot of things in this song; in the first
place it talks about travel, which is a desire to discover and find new ways to live, or simply to
come back to our origins, as example the life in community. In the film, we can see people
who are coming to the festival, very happy, sometimes dancing, coming to a place they do not
know yet: « I'm going to some place where I've never been before ». Here is another sign of
the skill of Michael Wadleigh, to bring closer visual things, the film, to auditory elements, the
music. I guess that he wanted to transmit an idea of the unknown, because at this point in
time, the people we see could not really know what was going to happen. This idea of waiting
gives the desire to discover the unknown, a feeling transmitted to the spectator of the film.
There is a notion of a throw-back to the essential as well, to the land: « Going up to the
country ». The film shows it as well, the festival-goers are coming to the country, to the
middle of nature. Moreover, there is a denial against society and what it implies, like work or
violence:
« We can jump in the water, stay drunk all the time
I'm gonna leave this city, got to get away
All this fussing and fighting, man
You know I sure can't stay »
These lyrics represent very well the conception of the Woodstock Festival and its
generation. A few of those who believe in this lifestyle defend ideals, like community life or
the use of drugs, badly considered by most in the past and today. This really represents the
hippie counter-culture.
« No use of you running or screaming and crying
'Cause you got a home as long as I've got mine »
These last sentences are very interesting to
analyse, because from one point a view we could say
that if I have a home, you have got one as well, and if I
do not, you do not either and you have to go away, as if
you had to disappear. From my point of view, I would
say this sentence means that when I will no longer have
a home, you will have to leave it as well, but by my
side. This interpretation has, in my mind, more value,
because it is nearer to the conception of loving each
other, so the hippie philosophy.

2.4 Richie Havens – Freedom
It seems as if Richie Havens is repeating the word « Freedom » a million times in his
song. Someone who listens to this music without understanding all the words could think that
it is a cry for freedom but, behind liberty, there is loneliness and a lack of affection from
others, but above all, a lack of his family.
After the eight first repetitions of « Freedom », he feels like « a motherless child »,
which is the first sign of a lack. After that, he again repeats eight times « Freedom ». This
shows how he insists on the notion of liberty. Then he states that he is far away from his
home: « Sometimes I feel/Like I’m almost gone, yeah/A long way from my home, yeah ».
These lyrics imply distance; distance is often the source of nostalgia, or it could represent an
idea connected to the festival: the people present there wanted, searched for a return to a true
life, to our origins. At any rate, he has got « a telephone in his bosom » and can call his family
whenever he wants with his heart; that means love brings people closer, in this case, with his
family, even if they are far away from each other. In my opinion, even if freedom sometimes
brings loneliness, with the power of love you will always have a sort of contact or connection
with the ones you know intimately.
All these facts show the great brilliance of Richie Havens: this was a song he
improvised when he ran out of songs. He brought closer lyrical elements of a Negro spiritual,
from the song « Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child », to the notion of liberty. It was
when I understood this that I really realized what the Woodstock Festival was: a strong
emotional tie between people through love.

2.4.1

A Multicultural Festival

This film gives the occasion to observe how the festival represented a real ethnic
diversity. Throughout the documentary we notice that many ethnic groups are present. In the
audience and on stage, artists from all around the world performed in front of the enormous
mixed crowd: Richie Havens and Ravi Shankar came from India; Sly Stone and Jimi Hendrix
were African-Americans; Carlos Santana is a Mexican-American. On the other hand, most
performers came from the United States of America and from the United Kingdom. This
shows how easy it is to live in harmony with others.
India had a great influence on the counter-culture movement, mainly the notion of
union and peace between people. But not only that: an example taken from the documentary
could be when a man does a yoga demonstration.7 This is a union between body and mind,
through breath, concentration and experience. The dress style at this time is another example,
which finds some origins in India: colourful clothes which are a pleasure to wear, because of
their form and texture, like the Jimi Hendrix’s fringed jacket or Ravi Shankar’s traditional
clothing.

2.5 The Who - See Me, Feel Me
« See Me
Feel Me
Touch Me
Heal Me
Listening to you,
I get the music
Gazing at you,
I get the heat
Following you,
I climb the mountain
I get excitement
At your feet
Right behind you,
I see the millions
On you, I see the glory
From you, I get opinion
From you, I get the story »

Here is one of the most beautiful love songs I have
ever heard. I find the lyrics are simply perfect according to
the frame of mind of the festival; they represent a desire to
do great things, or just to get music and life by the help of
someone or something: Love.
But there is one thing I am very surprised about: I
thought that The Who sang protest songs, like My
Generation or Won't Get Fooled Again, instead of love
songs like this one. It is as if they were asking their muse to
take care of them, in order to « get the music » or « to get
opinion», for example. And even if the song sounds loud,
like they usually play, I think that, in fact, it reveals what is
inside their breast: Music & Love.
They use a structure with rhymes A-B/A-B, for
example in the four last lines. These kinds of repetitions are
ideal with love songs and bring harmony. The Beatles, in
the first half of the sixties, used this kind of structure in
their early career

2.6 Joe Cocker & the Grease Band - With a Little Help from My
Friends
This is perhaps the song I love the most in this film,
because it was written by Lennon and McCartney, who did not
take part in the Woodstock Festival with The Beatles because
they stopped playing live music three years before the festival.
Their version is not exactly the same as Joe Cocker’s one. He
could not play with as many instruments as in the Beatles’
version, not with as much subtlety. However, even if this
version is louder, the most important thing is music! We can
hear Joe Cocker saying before he begins to sing, that it is a
song which talks about everything. It represents, to my mind,
the emotional tie between people. I think that Wadleigh chose
this song because of that, and of course because it is a great song.
10

Figure 8: Joe Cocker

TM 2011

Arnold Berney
Class 3M07

In this song, a man sings for a love which seems to be lost, or is maybe not found yet.
Friendship is considered more important than love: « All I need is my buddies ». When he
talks about love, the music is very quiet, and as soon as the notion of friendship comes, the
music gets into a sort of fury. We notice that at the sixth verse, he speaks again about love,
but the music sounds loud as well - Why? Because the first time, he is a long way from love,
and he seems to want to approach it. But the second time, he says he needs love. So we can
conclude that acting is more useful (in any case louder) than passivity. Whatever you do, love
will always be there, even if you do not want it, or if you are with your friends: « Everywhere
we go, we're gonna be on the same road ».

2.6.1

No Rain!

Right after Joe Cocker’s performance, a sort of little storm joined the festival program.
After a moment of disorder and good instructions to avoid possible accidents, like electric
discharges or some short-circuits, people are interviewed about this rain. Some of them do not
like it, others are not disturbed and see it as an « add attraction ». They keep a positive
outlook and sometimes simply take their clothes off.8
What happened after this is, in my opinion, remarkable. All these people are united by
this rain: we are all in the same boat. It seems to be as if the whole crowd sings, claps their
hands or finds something to make some noise with. There are people sliding in the mud with
cameramen, drinking champagne or other drinks. Finally we can hear them saying: « Peace!
Peace! Peace! ... ». Here is a beautiful and concrete witness to the fact that music means
union.

2.7 Arlo Guthrie - Coming Into Los Angeles
I chose this song because it does not mean a lot to me; I cannot find a rational
explanation to the lyrics, and this is what caught my attention. My first supposition would be
that it might be a song based on experiences they had when they were travelling, in an airport,
in a train or coach station:
« There's a guy with a ticket to Mexico
No, he couldn't look much stranger
Walking in the hall with his things and all
Smiling, said he was the Lone Ranger9 »

TM 2011

Arnold Berney
Class 3M07

To my mind, these lyrics bring up multicultural notions: why would the « Lone
Ranger » leave the United States of America, because he fights for it, to go away to Mexico?
America may perhaps become a place where they do not want to stay any more. All the same,
in their song they are « coming into Los Angeles », and there is a little interruption in the
middle of the song in which we can hear Arlo Guthrie talking about the traffic jams that had
been caused as far as the New York City, on a six-lane highway, about a hundred kilometres
away from Woodstock! So there is a notion of travel in this song.
From another point of view, it might be a song written under the influence of various
drugs, which give hallucinations:
« Flying in a big airliner
Chickens flying everywhere around the plane
Could we ever feel much finer? [...]
Hip woman walking on a moving floor
Tripping on the escalator
And she’s blowing his mind »
The big airliner with the chickens around it must be a comparison, a representation of
drug use. Moreover we hear « Marijuana! » right before the song begins, and the film shows a
lot of people rolling and smoking joints and pipes or drinking wine. In any case, this song
talks about « a trip ».

2.7.1

Marijuana!

We can see a lot of people consuming various drugs – acids, pills, cocaine, marijuana
and alcohol for the most part - in the film, as usual in festivals. At that time, as today, artists
are not innocent. We see that John Sebastian, for example, is really high on stage in front of
the audience, where there seem to be more and more festival-goers.
The Hog Farm Community was present at Woodstock.10 It was a band of dropouts who
lived in community, to help people in need. They were able to give food to about five
thousand people per meal. They were just there to help those who were in need. They
installed a « Freak out Centre », where those who had a bad trip could take a rest there. The
people who landed there, after getting back to shape, usually helped the other ones who came.
Here is another example of what the festival was: a mutual help.
As we can see in the previous song Coming Into Los Angeles, drugs are a way of
sharing an experience with other people. They are in relation with music as well, as I said
previously, as the performers use them to control the pressure he feels when writing songs or
facing the audience. Moreover, I think it is a way to be unlike: there are « freaks » on one
hand and « normal people » on the other hand.

2.8 Jefferson Airplane - Won't You Try/Saturday Afternoon
The principal themes of this song are action: « Won’t you try » and the pursuit of love:
« Find a way to need someone
Find a way and see [...]
All that soon will be is what you need to see, my love »
During this « Saturday Afternoon », there are words describing the sky and colours:
« Find a way and need someone and the sunshine will set you free [...]
I will give you caps of blue and silver sunlight for your hair
Round about and everywhere sunshine instead of snow
Yellow clouds rising in the noon »
All these sentences create a psychedelic and love atmosphere. This is what Jefferson
Airplane usually do in their songs, as we see in White Rabbit, for example. It is an atmosphere
which is very close to the one at the Woodstock Festival. Maybe by chance, the band sang this
song while the sun was rising.
« People dancing everywhere, loudly shouting I don't care
It’s a time for growing and a time for knowing »
At last we can hear these two sentences which show, in my opinion, to what extent the
sixties were a really good period to live in; there are people who want to reach the top of the
social hierarchy, who always want to have more and more, but this lifestyle did not interest
the hippies and I find that magnificent. So they resist the society and preferred dancing,
singing or loving. Obviously, these experiences stimulate the « freaks’ » growth as much as if
they grew up with the « normal people », according to the lyrics.

2.8.1

A Generational Conflict

On many occasions in the documentary, the people who came to the Woodstock
Festival or artists like John Sebastian or Jefferson Airplane talk about generational conflicts.
What I want you to understand is that this documentary is not only a film about music. It is
also a film with political messages, just as the festival was, a way to express what we think
about everything, a combination of all the ideas and points of view.
There is for example, this guy who uses irony when he says he wants to reassure his
parents, because the festival is registered as a disaster area, even if the most part of the public
seems to be happy. Fortunately, there were some people who gave a useful hand to assist the
crowd, like the army and the Hog Farm Community. Another example could be the place in
the film of Sidney Westerfeld, whom we see at the beginning of the film. It is I guess not a
coincidence: he says that the « kids » were wonderful, and that nobody can complain about
them, even if he had to eat cornflakes for two days. It is a nice and funny anecdote to
captivate the spectator.

The interview of the police officer is one as well. He states he had been surprised of
what he saw, and moreover that we shall not have to express an opinion just by looking at
hairstyles or the way these young people dress, it is « their own business ». This is a nice
moment, because in fact he says we should be proud of these kids and the interviewer is
surprised to hear that on the part of a cop. The police officer answers:
« I am not a cop; I am the chief of Police. »
Some others have opposite opinions, like the farmer who lost his hay and his second
crop because the crowd trampled his fields. His milk went off as well because there were no
dairymen anymore. So, from his point of view, I consider it is normal to be dissatisfied, but he
could just give a look around him, and see that all these young people are happy, as the chief
of Police did. So, all the points of view are represented in this documentary. It proves Michael
Wadleigh’s opening mind.

2.9 John Sebastian - Younger Generation
After a couple of orders, pieces of advice given by John Sebastian for the attention of
the festival-goers, he congratulates the parents who had a baby a few moments before the
beginning of his song. It is a great moment, because two people died during the festival11, and
a newborn came; to my mind this shows how this festival became a real family, and what a
huge family! He dedicated this song to the newborn and his parents.

This song is a sort of a discussion he could have with children; a discussion to explain
the conflict between the different generations, the experiences of a little kid who grows up in
a strange world, in funny situations:
« Why must every generation think their folks are square [...]
Like sun showers are legal grounds for cutting school [...]
Like "hey Pop, can I go ride my zoom
It goes two hundred miles an hour suspended by balloons [...]
And "Hey, Pop, my girlfriend´s only three
She´s got her own videophone and she´s taking L.S.D.
And now that we are best friends she wants to give a bit to me »
This really shows the place of drugs in the hippie lifestyle and the disunity they create
between « freaks » and « normal people ». Throughout the documentary, we see a lot of little
kids. It could appear strange today, that some kids came with their parents, but it seems to not
question the parents, as they came with them.
However, there is a message for adults as well. There must be a positive atmosphere
for our kids to grow up properly, with monitoring but with tolerance and pastimes as well, and
they need education too. I think this is the song’s main message, and I imagine that because of
these elements, John Sebastian said that this newborn had a good beginning in being born at
the Woodstock Festival.

2.10 Country Joe McDonald - I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag
« Gimme a F!
F!
Gimme a U!
U!
Gimme a C!
C!
Gimme a K!
K!
What's that spell?
Fuck! … »
This is a protest song again the
Vietnam War. It is an excellent song
because there is a lot of irony. The
song is structured like this: the first
Figure 10: Country Joe McDonald
paragraph is irony about Uncle Sam’s
recruitment. Then comes the chorus:

15

TM 2011

Arnold Berney
Class 3M07
« And it's one, two, three
What are we fighting for?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn
Next stop is Vietnam
And it's five, six, seven
Open up the pearly gates
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! We’re all gonna die »

More than forty years later, when we hear this crowd singing, the desire to sing is still
here! If you want to, do not hesitate. Even if the war has now stopped for a long time, it will
do you no harm. I personally love the last sentence of this chorus, which represents the
disgust they had against this war. After that, there is a critique of the links between money and
war in the third paragraph: « Come on Wall Street, don't be slow/Why man, this is war au-gogo ». In the fifth paragraph there is a big critique of what implies war: Death.
« 'Cause the only good commie is the one that's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come »
They end with a paragraph about what could a family feel or live if they sent to
Vietnam, still with irony:
« Come on mothers throughout the land
Pack your boys off to Vietnam
Come on fathers, and don't hesitate
To send your sons off before it's too late
And you can be the first ones in your block
To have your boy come home in a box »
Throughout the song, all these opinions are extremely strong and it is really impressive
to see the entire crowd follow Country Joe McDonald and his band. This Woodstock Family
thought that they could change this violent world into a better one through the power of music
and love. History shows that they did not succeed, unfortunately.

2.11 Santana - Soul Sacrifice
I am convinced of the fact that Santana’s fame and renown are largely due to the
performance of Soul Sacrifice at Woodstock. I think that, even if there is no singing, we can
hear somehow the instruments communicating with us. It was as if we sacrificed our soul to
music through the instruments, which would give a lot of energy, as the pictures in the
documentary prove.
16

TM 2011

Arnold Berney
Class 3M07

The first four
instruments
that
come in order are the
tom-tom, drums, then
the bass and finally
the guitar. Each
instrument brings a
bit more energy, they
appear in turn. Carlos
Santana performed a Figure 11: Santana on stage
great guitar solo,
which I think is a legendary moment; we can see everybody in the audience following the
band. The electric organ begins during the solo. Then we have got a little moment to relax,
and after that a drum solo, played by the young Micheal Shrieve, who is only twenty years
old! He plays quiet, he accelerates the movement, then he is nearly silent, and after a moment:
BOOM! It is a sort of explosion of all the instruments at the same time. Then the band
continues playing and finally does a sort of crescendo with their instruments, and BOOM!
The final explosion has come. The musical instruments’ harmony is the most important
element in this song, and I personally feel the good vibes of this music transmitted to my soul.
I find that this music does not need lyrics, its fortitude is enough, and you just have to look at
the audience to notice it, or to carefully listen to the music. The end is near.

2.12 Sly & the Family Stone - I Want to Take You Higher
After this Soul Sacrifice to rock-salsa, performed by Santana, let me continue with
another artist who represents this multicultural festival as well: Sly and the Family Stone. This
soul-funk show-band plays in the middle of the night, in a purple light, which reinforced a
real psychedelic effect in the song.
We can see everyone in the band is really involved in the show, from the singing to the
trumpet, the guitar, the bass, the piano and the harmonica; everyone was doing everything he
could. Firstly, I think that we can never appreciate the current moment as much as we would
like to. Secondly, energy is normal I guess, because the goal of this song is that he wants to
take us higher. It is a song made to make the people dance:
« Beat is nitty-gritty...
I 'm gonna take you high...
Beat is there, I'm with you
Beating there to lose you
Sound is there to help you groove
Music's been a thought to me
Everybody take your places »
17

TM 2011

Arnold Berney
Class 3M07

Apart from these ones, the rest of the lyrics are not very developed. Like Santana, Sly
Stone’s power is the beat and the rhythm. It is enough to make the audience dance. Moreover,
he asks the audience to raise a hand in the air and make a peace sign to the sky and he dances
on stage. There is a strong link between him and the audience, as he says in the lyrics above
and the « sound is there to help you groove ».

2.13 Jimi Hendrix - Star Spangled Banner
After a long night of festivities, a little breakfast is brought to the audience. What a
nice way to begin a day! Right after that, the film takes us on a tour inside the portable toilets
« PORT-O-SAN ». The man who cleans the toilets has two sons: one is there in Woodstock,
the other one is in Vietnam. Then Max Yasgur makes a speech in front of a huge audience,
which seems to be pleased to see him, about what they achieved, what represented this crowd
and what they proved to the world: they were the largest group of people ever assembled in
one place; people who got together and had three days of fun and music.
All these elements bring us to Jimi Hendrix and give us a last demonstration of
Michael Wadleigh’s smartness: imagine that while you are watching the documentary, you
are at the Woodstock Festival. If you take breakfast, you will inevitably have to go to the
toilets, so you meet the toilets’ cleaner. He talks about his sons, who represent the
confrontation between the Woodstock Festival and the Vietnam War, which will be
represented in Hendrix’s version of Star Spangled Banner. Finally, the huge crowd in front of
Max Yasgur became a little group of people in front of Jimi Hendrix.
So you find yourself on Monday morning during the performance of this AfricanAmerican born in Seattle, with plenty of rubbish everywhere. This peerless singer and guitar
player does not open his mouth while he is playing his version of Star Spangled Banner,
except to enjoy his incredible guitar playing. He intersects his version of the United States’
hymn with guitar playing which seems to represent some explosions of bombs or disturbing
noises in the middle of it. On one hand, it was a credit to his country to play this song, but I
hear and interpret these noises as a provocation and an insult against the United States of
America, to represent how he felt about the Vietnam War. This was the last concert of the
Woodstock Festival ever. To my mind, there will never be another union, like the one at the
Woodstock Festival, in an enormous crowd present somewhere to listen to excellent music,
live and fight in a common way. I guess these are elements, with the participants’ number,
which gave afterward greatness to the festival.
Michael Wadleigh’s documentary finished on this note: it is nearly disastrous to see
this enormous crowd converted into a little group of persons, on this amphitheatre shape hill,
next to the rubbish. It is certainly a way to make people think about what we are: People who
act, which is excellent, but always leave a record, everywhere we go.

Conclusion

To conclude with all the elements I tried to spotlight in each song, we deduce that the
Woodstock Festival was a celebration of what was happening at the end of the sixties and that
the documentary is built as a poem which tells what happened at the festival: a protest against
the Vietnam War, a desire for equality between ethnic groups, a return to the land, mutual
help, support between people, a fight for human beings, women’s rights and « the corny but
pertinent notion at this time: Let’s make love, not war! » as said Leo Lyons, bassist of the
band Ten Years After.12 There was needed to symbolize the sixties’ feeling, and nowadays we
can hear some people talking about the Woodstock Generation.
A very important element to emphasize is that the festival has become one of the most
popular events of the last fifty years, I guess, because it is an entity. I think that it is the same
case for the film: there is a beginning, the organization; a middle, the festival and all the
elements mentioned above; and an end, Jimi Hendrix’s performance and the sight of this
barmy field, a conclusion expressing that human beings act but cannot disappear without a
trace. It is, in my opinion, an echo to what they carried out: the largest group of people ever
assembled at one place and at the same time to listen to music and to have fun. The pieces of
music have an order: Michael Wadleigh built his documentary in order to give the feeling to
the spectator that he experiences the preparations of the events, the arrival of the festivalgoers, then three days and two nights of concerts. Because of that, this documentary
captivates the spectator and offers the only chance to relive the Woodstock Experience.

4.3 Lyrics
1. Crosby, Stills & Nash - Long Time
Gone

All this fussing and fighting, man, you know I sure
can't stay

It's been a long time comin'
It's goin' to be a long time gone

Now, Baby, pack your leaving trunk, you know we
got to leave today
Just exactly where we going I can not say
But we might even leave the U.S.A.
'Cause it's a brand new game, and I want to play

And it appears to be a long
Appears to be a long
Appears to be a long time
Yes, a long, long, long, long time before the dawn

No use of you running or screaming and crying
'Cause you got a home as long as I've got mine

Turn, turn any corner
Hear you must hear what the people say
You know there's something that's goin' on around
here
The surely, surely, surely won't stand the light of
day, no
And it appears to be a long
Appears to be a long, mmm
Appears to be a long time
Such a long, long time before the dawn
[Instrumental (Electric Guitar)]
Speak out you got to speak out against the madness
You got to speak your mind if you dare
But don't, no don't, no, try to get yourself elected
If you do you had better cut your hair, mmm
And it appears to be a long
Appears to be a long, mmm
Appears to be a long time
Such a long, long, long, long time before the dawn
It's been a long time comin' (Long time comin')
It's goin' to be a long time gone (Long time gone)
But you know
The darkest hour is always
Always just before the dawn
And it appears to be a long
Appears to be a long
Appears to be a long time
Such a long, long, long, long time before the dawn

2. Canned Heat - Going Up to the
Country
I'm going up the country, baby, don't you wanna go
I'm going up the country, baby, don't you wanna go
I'm going to some place where I've never been
before

3. Crosby, Stills & Nash - Wooden
Ship
If you smile at me, I will understand
'Cause that is something everybody everywhere
does
in the same language.
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?
Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks
now,
haven't got sick once.
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...

4. Richie Havens - Handsome Johnny
Hey, look yonder, tell me what's that you see
Marching to the fields of Concord?
It looks like Handsome Johnny with a musket in his
hand,
Marching to the Concord war, hey marching to the
Concord war.

wine

Hey, look yonder, tell me what you see
Marching to the fields of Gettysburg?
It looks like Handsome Johnny with a flintlock in
his hand,
Marching to the Gettysburg war, hey marching to

'Whoa-oh, I'm gonna get on by'
'Yes, I'm gonna get on by, girl'
'I won't sit alone, alone and cry'
'I won't tell you I'm lonely, girl'
'Can't hear me, now'

14. Crosby, Stills & Nash - Suite: Judy
Blue Eyes
It's getting to the point where I am 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, you
make it hard.

'Thought you were lookin' at the way I feel
And the warning sign in my eyes'
'Whoa, I'm gonna take my friends along with me'
'And then away we go'
'Everywhere we go we're gonna be on the same
road.

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, you
make it hard.

12. Country Joe and the Fish - Rock
and Soul Music
Ah! your love is like a rainbow
I said, ha, ah your love is like a rainbow darling
You know your love is like a rainbow
I say hey your love is like a rainbow
Oh, runnin' all around my shoulders
Runnin' all around my shoulders,
You know that your uh love is like a rainbow
Now runnin' all around my shoulders, yeah, and I
Love you, you know I do, alright, huh.

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, 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, and
you make it hard, and you make it hard.

13. Arlo Guthrie - Coming Into Los
Angeles
Coming in from London
From over the pole
Flying in a big airliner
Chickens flying everywhere around the plane
Could we ever feel much finer?
CHORUS:
Coming into Los Angeles
Bringing in a couple of keys
Don't touch my bags if you please
Mister Customs Man

Friday evening, Sunday in the afternoon, what have
you got to lose?
Tuesday morning, please be gone, I'm tired of you
what have you got to lose?
Can I tell it like it is, listen to me babyIt's my heart that's a suffering, it a-dying and that's
what I have to lose.

There's a guy with a ticket to Mexico
No, he couldn't look much stranger
Walking in the hall with his things and all
Smiling, said he was the Lone Ranger

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?

CHORUS

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 lyrics, losing love lamenting. Change
by life, make it right, be my lady.

Hip woman walking on a moving floor
Tripping on the escalator
There's a man in the line
And she's blowing his mind
Thinking that he's already made her

15. Ten Years After - I'm Going Home

CHORUS

Goin' home, my baby
Goin' home, my baby
Goin' home, to see my baby

Coming in from London
From over the pole
Flying in a big airliner
Chickens flying everywhere around the plane
Could we ever feel much finer?

Our baby, how good
My baby, be good
I'm goin' home, my baby
Home to see my girl

17. Jefferson Airplane - Uncle Sam's
Blues

And "Hey, Pop, my girlfriend´s only three
She´s got her own videophone and she´s taking
L.S.D.
And now that we are best friends she wants to give
a bit to me
But what is the matter Daddy, how come you are
turning green?
Can it be that you cannot live up to your dream?"

Got my questionnaire baby
You know I'm headed off for war
I got my questionnaire baby
You know I'm headed off for war
Well, now I'm gonna do some fightin'
Well, no one knows what for
Well, Uncle Sam ain't no woman
You know he sure can take your man
Said Uncle Sam ain't no woman
You know he sure can take your man
Well, there's 40,000 guys in the service list
Doin' somethin' somewhere they just don't
understand
Well, I'm gonna do some fightin'
Of that I can be sure
Said I'm gonna do some fightin'
Of that I can be sure
Well, now I want to kill somebody
Won't have to break no kind of law
I got my questionnaire baby
You know I'm headed off for war
I got my questionnaire baby
You know I'm headed off for war
Well, I want to kill somebody
Won't have to break no kind of law

19. Country Joe McDonald - I-FeelLike-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die Rag
Well, come on all of you, big strong men,
Uncle Sam needs your help again.
He's got himself in a terrible jam
Way down yonder in Vietnam
So put down your books and pick up a gun,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun.
And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why,
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

18. John Sebastian - Younger
Generation

Come on Wall Street, don't be slow,
Why man, this is war au-go-go
There's plenty good money to be made
By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade,
But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
They drop it on the Viet Cong.

Why must every generation think their folks are
square
And no matter where their heads are they know
mom ain´t there
Cause I swore when I was small that I´d remember
when
I knew what's wrong with them that I was smaller
then

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam.
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Determined to remember all the cardinal rules
Like sun showers are legal grounds for cutting
school
I know I have forgotten maybe one or two
And I hope that I recall them all before the baby´s
due
And I know he´ll have a question or two

Well, come on generals, let's move fast;
Your big chance has come at last.
Now you can go out and get those reds
'Cause the only good commie is the one that's dead
And you know that peace can only be won
When we've blown 'em all to kingdom come.

Like "hey Pop, can I go ride my zoom
It goes two hundred miles an hour suspended by
balloons
And can I put a droplet of this new stuff on my
tongue
And imagine frothing dragons while you sit and
wreck your lungs"
And I must be permissive, understanding of the
younger generation

And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.

Then I´ll know that all I´ve learned my kid assumes
And all my deepest worries must be his cartoons
And still I´ll try to them him all the things I´ve done
Related to what he can do when he becomes a man

Work me Lord.
Please don't you leave me

With no one to love,
Though I've looked everywhere.
And I can't find, anybody to love,
To feel my pain.
So . . .
Why use me Lord?
Don't you know how hard it is,
Trying to live alone?
Everyday I keep tryin' to move forward,
But something is driving me back.
Something's tryin' to hold onto me
Turn my world back.
So . . .
Don't you forget me down here lord,
Don't you forget me lord.
Well I don't think, I'm any very special kind of
person down here,
I know better.
Well I don't think you're going to find anybody, not
anybody who say
they tried like I tried.
The worst you can say all about me is that I've
never satisfied.
So . . .
Please don't leave me, I feel so useless down here.
I can't find anybody to love me, and I've looked
around.
Though I've looked everywhere, everywhere.
And I can't find, anybody to love,
To feel my pain.
So . . .
Don't go and leave me lord
Honey don't you go off and leave me lord.
Don't you know how hard it is,
Trying to live alone?
Everyday I keep trying to move forward,

Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the
deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence
reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering
steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first
beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

23. Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child
Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Yeah
Well, I stand up next to a mountain
And I chop it down with the edge of my hand
Well, I pick up all the pieces and make an island
Might even raise a little sand

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps'
pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Yeah
'cause I'm a voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child baby
I want to say one more last thing
I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back to ya one of these days

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n
rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a
nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Hahaha
I said I didn't mean to take up all your sweet time
I'll give it right back one of these days
Oh yeah
If I don't meet you no more in this world then uh
I'll meet ya on the next one
And don't be late
Don't be late

Instrumental: [Nothing]
'cause I'm a voodoo child voodoo child
Lord knows I'm a voodoo child

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Hey hey hey
I'm a voodoo child baby
I don't take no for an answer

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Question no
Yeah

24. Jimi Hendrix/Star Spangled
Banner/Improvisation/Purple Haze

Help me help me
Oh no no... no

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last
gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the
perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly
streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in
air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still

Yeah
Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You've got me blowin, blowin my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?
No, help me aw yeah! oh no no oh help me

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.

25. Crosby, Stills & Nash - Woodstock
Well I came upon a child of God, he was walking
along the road
And I asked him tell where are you going, this he
told me:
(He) said, I'm going down to Yasgur's farm, going
to join in a rock and roll band.
Got to get back to the land, and 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.

By the time we got to Woodstock, we were half a
million strong,
And everywhere was song and celebration.
And I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes riding
shotgun in the sky,
Turning into butterflies above our nation.

Well, then can I roam beside you? I have come to
lose the smog.
And I feel myself a cog in something turning.
And maybe it's the time of year, yes, said maybe it's

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