Soweto Sounds: Forever Young

Forever Young is another Bob Dylan song that the Soweto Gospel Choir have recorded.  The original song was released in 1974 on Dylan’s Planet Waves album.

Lyrics:

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 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 grow up and be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young….
