Story Behind the Song

As it says on the tin

Lyrics

I Never Made It To Woodstock

I never ever made it to Woodstock
I couldn't go coz it was on a school day
Even if it had been only at the weekend
I lived 3 and half thousand miles away


But I put Hendrix on the Dansette
Danced round in my kaftan and beads
I took my celebrations out into the street
Caused quite a scene in the centre of Leeds



Chorus

I've been out of my head to the Grateful Dead
Smoked hash to Crosby, Stills, Young and Nash
Erupted into uncontrollable laughter
Going home to Ten Years After
But I never ever made it to Woodstock


Verse

I cried when Janis and Jimi both passed
And of course when the Who lost Keith Moon
But the worst thing to happen after Woodstock
Was the hippies' hopes and dreams died way too soon

I missed it again in 2009
The 40 th anniversary bypassed me
I'd put on a few stones , had high cholesterol
And only listened to Coldplay cds

Chorus

I've been out of my head to the Grateful Dead
Smoked hash to Crosby, Stills, Young and Nash
Erupted into uncontrollable laughter
Going home to Ten Years After
But I never ever made it to Woodstock

But I never ever made it to Woodstock

But I never ever ....made it...to ...Woodstock
