May you [Em]stay [A(sus4-A)] forever[D] young
Forever [A]young, for[Bm]ever young
May you [D]stay[A] forever [D]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
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

And [C]climb on every rung
May you [G]stay [D] forever [G]young[C]
May you [G]stay [D] forever [G]young.
Biograph version
The guitar is tuned low, almost a half tone.
The strumming is very square, something like this (with sample
embellishment included, with no extra cost)
