These are the lyrics to a song you will hear.
I was born by the river in a little tentOh and just like the river I've been running ever sinceIt's been a long, a long time comingBut I know a change gonna come, oh yes it willIt's been too hard living but I'm afraid to dieCause I don't know what's up there beyond the sky It's been a long, a long time comingBut I know a change gonna come, oh yes it willI go to the movie and I go downtown Somebody keep telling me don't hang around It's been a long, a long time comingBut I know a change gonna come, oh yes it willThen I go to my brotherAnd I say brother help me pleaseBut he winds up knocking meBack down on my knees There been times that I thought I couldn't last for longBut now I think I'm able to carry onIt's been a long, a long time comingBut I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
