Otis Redding – A Change Is Gonna Come lyrics
I was born by a river, oh my
In this little old town
Just like this river
I've been running ever since
It's been alone

Lord, I'm coming but I know, but I know
That changes gotta come, now
Ou yes it is, my oh my oh my oh my

It's been too hard livin', oh my
And I'm afraid to die
I don't know what's up there
Beyond the clouds
It's been alone

Lord I'm coming but I know, but I know
That changes gotta come
Oh yes it is, my oh my oh my

There's a time
I will go to my brother, oh my
I would ask my brother
Will you help me please, oh now oh now
He turned me down
And then I asked my little mother, oh my oh
I said mother, I said mother
I'm down on my knees

It's been time that I go
Lord it's too late
Very long, oh now oh

Somehow I thought I was still able
To try to carry on
It's been alone
Lord I'm coming but I know
That changes gonna come
Oh yes it is

Huh, just like I said
I went to my little baby brother, oh my, my little brother
I asked my brother, brother help me please, oh now
He turned me down
And then I go to my little mother, my dear mother, oh now, huh
I said mother, I said mother I'm down on my knees

But there was a time that I go
Lord it's too late
So very long, oh my oh
Somehow I thought I was still able
To try to carry on
It's been alone
Lord I'm coming but I know, but I know
That changes gotta come, ou
It's been so long, It's been so long
A little too long
But changes gotta come
So tired, so tired of suffering
Standing by myself
Has given up a home
But changes gotta
