Grateful Dead

Forever Young

Lyrics By: Bob Dylan
Music By: Bob Dylan

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 one
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 true
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

Sung by Neil Young with the Grateful Dead on 3 November 1991 at the memorial concert for Bill Graham. Also played regularly by the Jerry Garcia Band from the mid 1980s, and from 2005 by Phil Lesh and Friends.
