"Forever Young" as written by and Jim Cregan Rod Stewart....
May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam.
And may sunshine and happiness surround you when you're far from home.
And my you grow to be proud, dignified and true.
And do unto others as you'd have done to you.
Be courageous and be brave.
And in my heart you'll always stay

Forever young. (Forever young)
Forever young. (Forever young)

May good fortune be with you, may your guiding light be strong,
Build a stairway to heaven with a prince or a vagabond.
And may you never love in vain.
And in my heart you will remain

Forever young. (Forever young)
Forever young. (Forever young)
Forever young. Forever young

And when you fin'lly fly away, I'll be hoping that I served you well.
For all the wisdom of a lifetime, no one can ever tell.
But whatever road you choose, I'm right behind you win or lose,

Forever young. (Forever young)
Forever young. (Forever young)
Forever young. Forever young
For forever young

    General CommentThis is every parent's song to their children. Its about being there for your kids and leading by example. All parents want their children to have integrity and dignity. Guiding your children to the right path and away from those who do not possess those qualities.

    General CommentI agree with godblessatheism. This song is not at all like the one Dylan wrote, except that Stewart copied a few phrases. The original lyrics and melody are much better, particularly when performed by Joan Baez on her album, From Every Stage. The original gentle melody and pace are moving, Stewart's overly instrumented gallop doesn't do anything for me.
