Verse:
A                E                        Gbm
  Let's start in style, let's dance for a while
           D                             E
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
                Bm                     D
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst
                      Gbm        E  A
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Verse:
A             E                      Gbm
  Let us stay young or let us live forever
                  D                       E
We don't have the power, but we never say never
               Bm                       D
Sitting in the sandpit, life is a short trip
                Gbm    E - A
The music's for the sadman

Verse:
A           E                         Gbm
   Can you imagine when this race is won
                 D               E
Turn out all the faces into the sun
              Bm                        D
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune
                     Gbm        E - A
The music's played by the madman

Chorus:
A           E
   Forever Young
          Gbm         D
I want to be Forever Young
E                       Bm
 Do you really want to live forever?
  D        E
 Forever,  and ever
A           E
   Forever Young,
          Gbm          D
I want to be Forever Young

     Forever Young.

Verse:
A               E                       Gbm
 Some are like water, some are like the heat
           D                       E
Some are a melody and some are the beat
          Bm                     D
Sooner or later they all will be gone
          Gbm             E- A
Why don't they stay young?

Verse:
A                    E              Gbm
  It's so hard to get old without a cause
               D                      E
I don't want to perish like a fading horse
            Bm              D
Years like diamonds in the sun
              Gb      E- A
And diamonds are forever

Verse:
A            E                 Gbm
  So many advantages given up today
         D                 E
So many songs we forgot to play
               Bm                   D
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
          Gbm    E - A
Oh let it come true

Chorus - repeat -:
A           E
   Forever Young
          Gbm         D
I want to be Forever Young
E                       Bm
 Do you really want to live forever?
  D        E
 Forever,  and ever
A           E
   Forever Young,
          Gbm          D
I want to be Forever Young
E                             Bm
   Do you really want to live forever?
 D  E         A   E D E
     Forever Young.

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
