May You Always song title page

May You Always was a popular song written by Larry Markes (sometimes shown as 'Marks') and Dick Charles. May You Always was built on the classic New Year's Day favorite Auld Lang Syne. This song came out at Christmas page time and was popularized by The McGuire Sisters, peaking weeks after Christmas and New Year's Day. It became a holiday staple, with The Lennon Sisters performing it regularly on TV program The Lawrence Welk Show and on their own for decades afterwards. In 1965, rock radio disk jockey Harry Harrison made a revamped recording of the song, and had a number 17 hit with it.
