"For Yasgur's Farm" as written by Gail Collins, George Gardos, Gary Ship, Laurence Laing, Felix Pappalardi and David Rea....
Who am i but you and the sun
A sad reflection in everyone
Was it me who let you walk away
Were you the one
Or is it weÂ're the same

What are we in time going by
The simple story of a younger life
Happy dreams and somehow through the day
We havenÂ't come so far to lose our way

Look at me, i believe itÂ's true
YouÂ're a part of me
IÂ'm a part of you

Love is only what we come to knew
The walking, breathing and all with you
A crystal passing reflected in our eyes
Eclipsing all the jealousy and lies

Look at me, canÂ't you see itÂ's true
YouÂ're a part of me
IÂ'm a part of you

Quiet as the voices in a dream
Without two shadows the things iÂ've seen
Remember the evening i let you walk away
Were you the one
Or is it weÂ're the same

Look at me, i believe itÂ's true
YouÂ're a part of me
IÂ'm a part of you

    Lyric CorrectionThere are some slight, but significant changes to the lyrics I'd like to suggest. The appear here in CAPS. for clarity:

    Who am I but you and the SON?
    A SLANT reflection IN everyone
    Was it me who let you walk away?
    Were you the one or is it we're the same?

    What are we in time going by?
    A simple story of a younger life
    HALF IN DREAM and somehow through the day
    We haven't come so far to lose our way

    Look at me
    I believe it's true
    You're a part of me
    I'm a part of you

    Love is only what we come to live
    The waking, breathing in all we give
    A crystal passing reflected in our eyes
    Eclipsing all the jealousy and lies

    Look at me
    I believe it's true
    You're a part of me
    I'm a part of you

    Quiet as the voices in a dream,
    Without TO SHADOW the things I've seen
    Remember the evening I let you walk away?
    Were you the one, or is it we're the same?

    Look at me
    I believe it's true
    You're a part of me
    I'm a part of you

    General CommentI think this song is essentially about lost love. I usually don't buy into love songs, but this one seems especially unique in that the narrator has failed to pursue a woman he loves ("Remember the evening I let you walk away?"). He knows the two of them are meant to be together, as evidenced by the chorus, because they're so alike. The lyrics are especially relatable to me because I've too often allowed the same thing to happen to me; I've let questions get in the way of pursuing girls that have shown interest in me. The narrator's elevated voice in the chorus really hits it home for me too, as he seems to be expressing some underlying frustration.

    Song MeaningThe song is a tribute to Woodstock, at which Mountain played, you can hear them on the 2nd Woodstock album. Max Yasgur was the farmer whose land they used for the festival. The lyrics are a bit trippy and existential, like Joni Mitchell's Woodstock.

    General CommentIn the Canned Heat bio "Living the Blues", they mention that CH met up with Pappalardi after both had played, and were desperately trying to get out of there through the sea of people. Pappalardi is said to have stolen a limo, and CH caught a ride with him. May be what "We haven't come so far to lose our way" is about.
    The relationship lyrics could be about Collins and Pappalardi, who had a very troubled relationship (she ended up murdering him years later), possibly the "jealously and lies" reference.
