Bob Dylan – Forever Young

May 24, 2011

Talking of birthdays, and after having established that Bob Geldof and Bob Dylan are two completely different people, I want to wish the second one a Happy 70th Birthday – what an incredible musician and what a remarkable testimony. It seems only right to use one of his own songs as a birthday tribute for him and a gentle nudge in the right direction for us, for “Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow that it passes through” (Dylan).

Forever Young

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

Check out his album Slow Train Coming.
