Aretha Franklin - A Change Is Gonna Come

(Lyrics by Sam Cooke)

Theres an old friend
That I once heard say
Something that touched my heart
And it began this way

I was born by the river
In a little tent
And just like the river
Ive been runnin ever since
He said its been a long time comin
But I know my change is gonna come
Oh yeah

He said its been too hard livin
But Im afraid to die
I might not be if I knew
What was up there beyond the sky
Its been a long, a long time comin
But I know my change has got to come
Oh yeah

I went, I went to my brother
And I asked him, "Brother
Could you help me, please?"
He said, "Good sister
Id like to but Im not able"
And when I, when I looked around
I was right back down
Down on my bended knees
Yes I was, oh

Thereve been times that I thought
I thought that I wouldnt last for long
But somehow right now I believe
That Im able, Im able to carry on
I tell you that its been along
And oh its been an uphill journey
All the way
But I know, I know, I know
I know my change is gonna come
Sometimes I had to cry all night long
Yes I did
Sometimes I had to give up right
For what I knew was wrong
Yes its been an uphill journey
Its sures been a long way comin
Yes it has
Its been real hard
Every step of the way
But I believe, I believe
This evenin my change is come
Yeah I tell you that
My change is come..
