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

It's been a long, long time comin'
But I know, a change is gonna come
Oh, yes it will

It's been too hard livin'
But I'm afraid to die
I don't know what's up there
Beyond the sky

It's been a long, a long time comin'
But I know, a change is gonna come
Oh, yes it will

I go to the movie
And I go downtown
Somebody's tellin' me
Don't you hang around

It's been a long, long time comin'
But I know, a change is gonna come
Oh, yes it will

Then I go to my brother
I say brother, brother help me please
But he just winds up knocking me
Back down on my knees, well

There were times that I thought
I couldn't make it alone
But now I'm able, I'm able
To carry on

It's been a long, a long time comin'
But I know, a change is gonna come
Oh, yes it will
Lord, it's been a long time comin'
But I know, a change is gonna come
