I was born by the river in a little tent
Just like the river I've been running, running ever since
It's been a long time coming but I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes, it will

It's been too hard living but I'm afraid to die
'Cause I don't know if something is beyond the sky
It's been a long time coming but I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes, it will

Then I come to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keeps telling me don't hang around
It's been a long time coming but I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes, it will

Then I got to my brother
And I say brother help me please
But he winds up knocking me
Back down on my knees

There were times when I though I couldn't last for long
I know I need to carry on it's been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come
Oh yes, it will
