a change is gonna come lyrics – solo

i was born by the river in a little tent
just like the river i’ve been running, running ever since
it’s been a 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 if something is beyond the sky
it’s been a long time coming but i know a change is gonna come
oh yes, it will

then i come to the movie and i go downtown
somebody keeps telling 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 got to my brother
and i say brother help me please
but he winds up knocking me
back down on my knees

there were times when i though i couldn’t last for long
i know i need to carry on it’s been a long time coming
but i know a change is gonna come
oh yes, it will
