"A Change Is Gonna Come" as written by and Sam Cooke....
I was born by the river
In a little town
Just like that river
I've been runnin' ever since

It's been a long, long time comin'
But I know a change is gonna come, ohh
It's been too hard livin'
But I'm afraid to die
Cause I don't know whats up there
The other side

It's been a long time comin'
But I know a change is gonna come, ohh
I go to the movies, ha
And I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin' me
Don't hang around

It's been a long, long time comin'
But I know a change gon' come, see

Then I go to my brother
And I say brother, help me please, ohh
But he winds up, oh winds up knockin' me
Down on my, knockin' me down on my knees, ohh
There's been times when I thought
That I wouldn't last for long
But now I know I'm able to carry on

It's been a long, long time comin'
But I know a change is gonna come
Ohh
