I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh, just like the river I've been runnin' ever since
It's been a long, long time comin' but I know
Change gonna come, oh yes, it will

It's been to hard livin' but I'm afraid to die
'Cause I don't know what's up there beyond the sky
It's been a long, long time comin' but I know
Change gonna come, woah yes, it will

I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin' me don't hang around
It's been a long long time comin' but I know
That change gonna come, oh yes, it will

When I go to my brother I say, brother help me please
But he winds up knockin' me back
Down on my knees beggin' please, yeah
There've been times I thought I couldn't last that long
Now I think I'm able to carry on

It's been a long, long time long time comin'
But I know that change gonna come, oh yes, it will
