5th Dimension – A Change Is Gonna Come & People Gotta Be Free lyrics

I was born by the river
In a little tent, oh
And just like a river
I've been running ever since

It's been a long
A long time coming
But I know a change
Has got to come
Oh, yes, it will

It's been too hard living
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 coming
But I know a change
Has got to come
Oh, yes, it will

(And I go) then I
I go to my brother
(And I say) and I say
Brother, help me please

But he, you know he
Just keep on, keep on
Knocking me to my knees

But, oh, there's been times
That I thought I could last alone
Now I think I'm able to carry on

It's been a long
A long time coming
But I know a change
Has got to come
A change has
Got to come, yeah

All the world over
So easy to see
People everywhere
Just wanna be free

Listen, please listen
That's the way it should be
Peace in the valley
People got to be free

They wanna be free now
Ow, come on
All the world

All the world over
So easy to see
People everywhere
Just wanna be free

(Can't understand it)
Can't understand it
So simple to me
People everywhere
Just got to be free

Got to, got to be free
Listen

Shout it from the mountains
On out to the sea
No two ways about it
People have to be free

Ask me my opinion
My opinion will be
Natural situation for
A man to be free

Oh, come on
Ow, wanna be free
Yeah, yeah, oww
What a feeling

Oh, what a feeling's
Just come over me
(Enough to move a mountain)
Love can move a mountain
Make a blind man see

Everybody's dancing
Come on, let's go see
(And peace in the valley)
Peace in the valley now
We all can be free

Come on, that's
What I'm talking about
Let me hear you clap one time
Come on

(Wanna be free) yeah
Come on (got to be free)
All the world over
(Wanna be free)
So easy to see
(Got to be free)

People everywhere
(Wanna be free)
They just wanna be free
(Free)

Oh, what a feeling (free)
Come on with me (free)
I got to move a mountain
Make a blind man see

All the world over...
