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 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
