Thread Name: Lyr Req/ADD: Nectar of Life (Bob Franke)
Subject: forever young?
(Wanted to post this with proper title, excuse repetition)

Does any one know who sung this song- I'm not certain that it is actually called Forever Young:

(And this is a loose rendition of the lyrics)

Do they know I was a (?bastard?) I was a saint in the church
I fought for my children and I did good work
I fought for my lover and my self-respect
And the nectar of life never left my tongue...
Forever young.

This is all I can remember. The singer has a very deep voice... sings this song almost like L. Cohen...
