Band, The - Forever Young Lyrics

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous,
May you grow up to be true,
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous,
Stand upright and be strong,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young,
Forever young, forever young,
May you stay forever young.

  14. Leslie Shiflet

  18. Raphael Falzarano

    'Forever Young' (1974)
    What does it mean?: It was written for Dylan’s children, which fits the nursery rhyme / hymnal tone of the tune. Diana Ross covered it, you know.
    Dylan had four children between 1966-1969, including his youngest Jakob, who went on to front The Wallflowers. In 1974, he got back together with his original backing group The Band, and recorded Planet Waves, which included this uplifting message from a parent to a child. The song has endured as one of Dylan's classics, and in 2009 it was remixed by for a popular Pepsi commercial..

    Leslie Shiflet

    I forgot all about The Wallflowers.

  19. Alan Smith

    and may you stay...forever young

  20. YNO JayJay

    david berman

  21. Robin Runciman

    I grew up with Bob Dylan and the Love Revolution - the golden age of rock'n roll the only thing that touched my heart and soul - I am 70 now but this song keeps me forever young - love you Bob - no one else like you x

  22. Jack Wardrop

    Ok my guess is at 4:32 Dylan say “seventh chord”. Meaning he wants to end to song on a 7th chord which is a little different.

  23. lucarockteca2001

    eternal ballad like his words

  24. John Thorne

    Great moment in history Dylan and The Band

  25. Tom Slowcat

    2:18 Love the way Dylan seems to react to the glitch in the video. :D

    ginny matheny


    Kevin McCort

    Best singalong song to lift your s spirits

  29. BibleMVP

    Hello Luka! Bible MusicVideoPlaylists is using this excellent video of Adam Sandler performing with The Band to correlate with I John ch2,v25. It was a nice touch for Sandler to use a style of vocals like that of Tom Petty. This video can be found on the playlists entitled "BibleMVP - I John." This video will be taken off the playlist if you wish. In all cases, thank you for this publication.

    May God bless and keep you always
    May your wishes all come true
    May you always do for others
    And let others do for you
    May you build a ladder to the stars
    And climb on every rung
    May you stay forever young
    May you stay forever young

    May you grow up to be righteous
    May you grow up to be true
    May you always know the truth
    And see the light surrounding you
    May you always be courageous
    Stand upright and be strong
    May you stay forever young
    May you stay forever young

    May your hands always be busy
    May your feet always be swift
    May you have a strong foundation
    When the winds of changes shift
    May your heart always be joyful
    May your song always be sung
    And may you stay forever young
    May you stay forever young

  51. Markus Weinseiss

    What and outstanding poet and musician. I was very happy when he was awarded the Nobel price. It was the only time ever I agreed with the committee‘s decision.

  52. Ryan R

    But he is an all time sloppy singer. Let's just face it, he wouldn't even get through the audition of America's got talent.

    Julián Dro

    But that is an awful show, dude...

  55. Edie

    Bob Dylan, Baphomet, I don't know what to see, hear, believe anymore.

  56. Dave Southall

    Live music close to its best, Dylan is effortless and The Band close to perfection, probably the greatest live band ever, timeless, beautiful song

  57. Dr. Scott Crull, PhD

    There are better versions of this beautiful song!

  58. Janet Hills

    song dedicated to All My Family 💖💖💖

  73. Andrew Bluebells

    Beautiful lyrics 😎

  74. Jusko Cou

    je ne comprends pas toutes les paroles mais ces solos de guitares m'aident à en saisir l'essence

  75. Sandra Kenny


  76. Daniel S

    I'm getting old, but I'll outgrow it.
    I'm 66 but I act like a 65 year old.

  77. Theresa Waxman

    I just decided that this is the song I want when I dance with my son at his wedding

  78. Life Observer

    Oh, ya killed me, cutting off the ending!! I was waiting (with bated breath!!) for the hard jam at the end, and all I got was silence! This is, BY FAR, my favorite version of Forever Young, with Dylan in it. I also have to say, this is the best condition I've ever seen him in, and I've seen him, over a few decades, on stage and behind the stage. He actually is a doll in this video! No wonder Baez fell so hard for him, back in the day. Mmmm...fine lookin'!

  79. bob green

    "" May you always do for others and let others do for you ' ...

  86. Kathleen Gleason

    Oh Lord Bob is so anointed I'm in tears love it

    Larry Holcomb

    Makes your heart soar doesn't it?

  87. moyadapne

    I wrote the lines to this song to an old flame. She rang me, worrying I'd found God. Now I never got that from this. But I do miss the young man I was when I first saw this movie.

  88. Cliff Hughes

    Who needs modern production techniques, midi instruments and autotune? This is magic, magic, MAGIC.

    Kathleen Gleason

    I agree this film holds it all Dylan Neil young the star sisters Neil diamond etc only van Morrison disappointed staple sisters I mean

  89. karasingi blue

  90. George Vidakis

    Για πάντα νέος
    Μπορεί ο Θεός να σε ευλογήσει και να σε κρατήσει για πάντα
    Μπορεί οι ευχές σου να πραγματοποιηθούν,
    Μπορεί να κάνεις πάντα για τους άλλους
    Και να αφήνεις τους άλλους να κάνουν για εσένα.
    Μπορεί να χτίσεις μια σκάλα μέχρι τα άστρα
    Και να σκαρφαλώσεις σε κάθε σκαλοπάτι,
    Μπορεί να μείνεις για πάντα νέος.
    Για πάντα νέος, πάντα νέος,
    Μπορεί να μείνεις για πάντα νέος

    Μπορεί να μεγαλώσεις για να είσαι ενάρετος,
    Μπορεί να μεγαλώσεις για να είσαι αληθινός,
    Μπορεί να ξέρεις πάντα την αλήθεια
    Και να δεις τα φώτα να σε περικυκλώνουν.
    Μπορεί πάντα να είσαι γενναίος,
    Να στέκεσαι όρθιος και να σαι δυνατός,
    Μπορεί να μείνεις για πάντα νέος.
    Για πάντα νέος, πάντα νέος,
    Μπορεί να μείνεις για πάντα νέος

    Μπορεί τα χέρια σου πάντα να είναι απασχολημένα.
    Μπορεί τα πόδια σου να ναι πάντα γοργά,
    Μπορεί να έχεις καλά θεμέλια
    Όταν ο άνεμος των αλλαγών φυσά.
    Μπορεί η καρδιά σου πάντα να είναι χαρούμενη,
    Μπορεί το τραγούδι σου πάντα να τραγουδιέται,
    Μπορεί να μείνεις για πάντα νέος.
    Για πάντα νέος, πάντα νέος,
    Μπορεί να μείνεις για πάντα νέος

    Needs a LOT more attribution for the sources. The film, the song, the songwriter. You're being very direspectful to the copyright owners. How about fixing it?
