Forever Young Lyrics

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 may 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 finally 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, Forever Young

This 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.

@Arachidamia I thought exact thing.

great song.. bob did a great job writing it but rods version is better. i read the lyrics to my little girl every now and the before bed....

I love when people share music idea, lyrics, and music to kids! Its like "Simple Man" I want to share with my kids, when I have kids! This song too!

An error occured.

How can you not like this song?? It was played at my brothers wedding and its definently being played at mine!

An error occured.

i know so many people have done this song along with the guy who wrote it(bob dylan) but theres just something about the way rod does it. yeah how cant u not like it. its so upbeat.

An error occured.

Wow I must disagree with the last few morons who hate Rod Stewarts version of this song. Bob wrote a great song and Rod perfected it. Especially the slow version which is not heard much anywhere ( I had to buy it off itunes) The words to this song are just so powerful and meaningful its hard to explain it.

An error occured.

Um, this isn't really a cover of Bob Dylan's song. I mean, some of the lyrics are similar, but it's not a cover.

An error occured.

i have to say i love this song! i fell in love with it as soon as i herd it!

An error occured.

It's not a cover. Stewart wrote the song, and Dylan accused him of copying his. He admitted he subconsciously plagiarized the original and shared the royalties.

@:Dev Subconsciously...that's funny. He used some of the actual words from the real song. That is what is know as straight up stealing, which is why he paid what he did.

May the good Lord be with you down every road you roam.(May God be with you at all times in life) 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.(Have friends when you do die from every aspec of life. Rich, poor, different and unique, broad spectrum of friends) 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.(When you grow up and live your own life, I really hope I did my best to raise you and prepare you for the world) 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, (Unconditional love )

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