a change is gonna come lyrics – everlast

“a change is gonna come”

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

oh 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
