George Benson – A Change Is Gonna Come Lyrics

I was born by the river

In a little tent, and o

Just like that river

I’ve been 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 what’s up there

Beyond the sky

It’s been a long time coming, but I know

A change is gonna come, oh 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 time coming, but I know

A change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother

And I say brother help me please

But he wind up (knocking) me

Back down on my knees

There have been times that I thought

I couldn’t last for long

But now I think I’m able to carry on

It’s been a long time, but I know

A change is gonna come, oh yes it will
