A Change Is Gonna Come


A Change Is Gonna Come
Sam Cooke

I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, a long time coming 
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will 

It's been too hard living but I'm afraid to die 
Cause I don't know what's up there beyond the sky 
It's been a long, a long time coming 
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will 

I go to the movie and I go downtown 
somebody keep telling me don't hang around 
It's been a long, a long time coming 
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will 

Then I go to my brother 
And I say brother help me please 
But he winds up knockin' me 
Back down on my knees 

There been times that I thought I couldn't last for long 
But now I think I'm able to carry on 
It's been a long, a long time coming 
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
