A Change Is Gonna Come
Sam Cooke Lyrics


I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I've been running ev'r since
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change 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, a long time coming
But I know a change 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, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say brother help me please
But he winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees, oh

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, a long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

The change comes from within,,
Be strong, stay strong, , life is good, people,, bad people makes life hard,. But good people are more than the bad,
I was taught not to lie cheat or steal, never look up to no man and never look down on no man,
Never treat a stranger like a stranger, until he treats you like one, then ,,know he's not good people and just leave him alone,,
If you walk into a place and you don't feel welcome, turn around and walk back out,, or you may find yourself in trouble,,, and pray,,
Remember it takes two, to argue. And I ain't got time to waste on a fool,. Best song to keep in your mind and heart. To survive this wonderful world. Full of bad people,. Just don't become one of them..
One by one,,we change the world.
NOW GO WATCH THE VIDEO OF THE TEMPTATION S. SOUL TO SOUL, THE NEXT PERFECT SONG TO KEEP YOUR HEART WARM. IN THIS COLD , COLD. WORLD. ITS UP TO US,, NOT THEM,, TO STAY STRONG IN BAD TIMES.
NEVER FALL WEAK TO YOUR ENEIMIES,,. STAY AHEAD OF THEM,,

Sam Cooke ALWAYS makes me cry. His voice and music move me so much!

This world is in a sad state. Come on EVERYONE let's come together. We have to stop all this crazy and love one another!

We cant let all the work and suffering of the people who came before us be for nothing!

With all the knowledge and technology we have we are going backward!!!!!! We need to knock it off! Enough is enough!!!!

❤❤❤❤
