Happy Birthday, Bob: Forever Young

In honor of his 70th birthday today, here's a beautiful rendition of Bob Dylan's "Forever Young" performed by Joan Baez.

Forever Young
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 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.

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
And may your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young.
