I was born by the river in a little tent and oh
Just like that river I've been running ever since
It's been a long long time coming but I know
A change is 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 time coming, but I know
A change is gonna come, oh yes it will.

I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin me don't hang around
It's been a long time coming, but I know
A change is gonna come, oh yes it will.

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

There have 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 time, but I know
A change is gonna come, oh yes it will.

The lyrics and music to "A Change Is Gonna Come" is by Sam Cooke.
