Lyrical Inspiration - 'Forever Young'
Posted 1/22/2014 7:19:00 PM

Did you know that Bob Dylan shares writing credits on this song?

Rod actually co-wrote the song with a couple of bandmembers, and when they realized the similarity to an early Dylan song, also titled 'Forever Young', they sent it to him for approval. Dylan, cool as ever, had no problem with it, and agreed to the writing credit. Here's the whole story.

And here are the full lyrics to this beautiful song. (Want to compare with the Dylan version? Click here.) (See the video here.)

 "Forever Young"

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 ...
