Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


A change is gonna come  Sam Cooke



I was b[E]orn by the r[E7]iver in a little tent
And j[A]ust like that river I've been r[C#m]unning ever si[B]nce
It's been a l[E]ong time co[A]ming
But I k[G#]now a change is gonna [C#m]come, [A]oh [B]yes it w[E]ill
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
BRIDGE:
[F#m]And then I go to see my [C#m]brother
A[F#m]nd I ask him to help me p[C#m]lease
A[F#m]nd he just winds up kn[C#m]ockin' me
B[F#]ack down on my [B]knees[B7]
There were times when 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
REPEAT VERSE 2
NOTE: I know this song from the Aretha Franklin and Band versions, but I
figure it's only right to post this under Sam Cooke's name.

Of course that should have been the E in the 9877 form then the E7 as 7877

I like this, thanks.
For Ukulele I like it in A (+5 Semitones) with the D played in the 7th fret 9877.

Verse 3 (before the Bridge)

I go to the movie and I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin me
Don't hang around

It's been a long time comin' but I know
A change is gonna come, Oh, Yes it will
