A Change is Gonna Come Sam cooke

I was born by the river in a little tent

Sam Cooke wasnt very wealthy

Oh and just like the river I've been running ev'r since

He's always been busy

It's been a long time, a long time coming

He's lived a long life

But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

A change is about to come

It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die

Living as a african-american male is hard but he dosent want to die

'Cause I don't know what's up there, beyond the sky

He dosent know whats gonna happen next

It's been a long, a long time coming

But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movie and I go downtown

He does to the movie and downtown

Somebody keep tellin' me don't hang around

Racist men keep telling him that he shouldn't be there

It's been a long, a long time coming

But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
