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

Sucks that this song is relevant with its social message in 2020.

Justin Perez

I don’t think it’s sad at all. We’ve come a long way but we always knew it wasn’t gonna get better instantly. This country still has so much work to do and we have to keep telling it who we are and that we belong. We fight for our right to be here, to survive, to live. The fact that we can still use these powerful words today is inspirational. His message transcends time and the limit of this issue. Even in many many many years to come should race no longer be an issue, we can still look back on these and use it’s message to come together as people regardless.
