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.
