A Change Is Gonna Come  Sam Cooke

I was b[A#]orn by the river in a little tent [Cm7]
And just like that river I've been running[Gm]  ever since
It's been a [A#]long [Cm7]a long time coming
But I [D#]kno[Dm7]w   [Gm]   a change is gonna come, oh [A#]yes it will

It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
Cos I don't know what's out there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movies, and I go downtown,
Sombody keep telling don't hang around,
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

BRIDGE:
[Cm7]And then I go to see [A#]my brother
[Cm7]   And I ask him to help [A#]me please
[Cm7]   But he winds up [Gm]knockin' me
[C7]   Back down on my [F]knees

There've been times I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, been a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will
