I was born by the river
In a little tent
Oh and just like the river
I been runnin' ever since
It's been a long, a long time comin'
But I know-oh-whoa
A change gon' come
Oh, yes it will

It's been too hard livin'
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-oh-whoa
A change gon' 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, a long time coming
But I know-oh-whoa
A change gon' come
Oh, yes it will

Then I go-oh-whoa, to my brother
An I say, 'Brother help me please'
But he winds up knockin' me
Back on down my knees

Ooh, there been time 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 comin'
But I know-oh-whoa
A change is gon' come
Oh, yes it will.
