Forever Young Song
Rod Stewart 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 - 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
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
And whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever young - Forever young- Forever young - Forever young

Forever young - Forever young
Forever young - Forever young
Forever young - Forever young
Forever young
