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

It's been too hard living and I'm affraid to die 
I don't know what's up there beyond the sky 
It's been a long, long time coming 
But I know a change is gonna come 
Oh yes it is 

I go to the movies and I go around in town 
Everybody there keeps telling me "don't hang around" 
It's been a long, a long time coming 
But I know a change is gonna come 
Oh yes it is 

Then I go to my brother 
And I say "Brother, please" 
But he just winds up, knocking me 
Back down on my knees 

Sometimes I thought I wouldn't last for long 
But now I think I'm able to carry on 
It's been a long, long time coming 
But I know a change is gonna come 
Oh yes it is
