A Change Is Gonna Come

Sam Cooke

 A#Cm7
I was born by the river in a little tent  
 Gm
And just like that river I've been running  ever since
 A#Cm7
It's been a long a long time coming
 D#Dm7GmA#
But I know      a change is gonna come, oh 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:
 Cm7A#
 And then I go to see my brother
 Cm7A#
    And I ask him to help me please
 Cm7Gm
    But he winds up knockin' me
 C7F
    Back down on my 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
