Harlem World – A Change Is Gon' Come (featuring The Harlem Boys Choir) lyrics

I was born by the river.. In a little tent
No just like that river I've.. Been running ever since
It's been a long.. A long time coming
But I knowowwwww.. A change gon' come
Oh yes it will..
It's been tooooooo hard living
But I'm afraid to die..
Cause I don't know what's up there, beyond the sky
It's been a long tiiiime.. A long time coming
But I knowowwwww.. A change gon' come
Oh yes it will..
And I go.. To my brother (yes I do)
And say, "Brother - help me please" (well well)
But he winds up, knocking me..
I got on my knees, oahhhoooohhhhh
There's been times, that I thought
I wouldn't last too long..
.. But I think I'm able
.. To carry on..
It's been a long..
A long time coming, but I knowowowww..
A change gon' come..
Oh yes it will..
