Benson, George - A Change Is Gonna Come Lyrics




I was born by the river
In a little tent, and o
Just like that river
I've been running ever since

It's been a long time coming, but I know
A change is 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 time coming, but I know
A change is 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 time coming, but I know
A change is gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say brother help me please
But he wind up (knocking) me
Back down on my knees

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 time, but I know
A change is gonna come, oh yes it will

    Nice voice, but to me it does not sound like its been too hard living for him, thus does not move me as other covers do.

  4. Shadrach Abednego

    The version I heard first in 1983/84. I wasn't even aware there was an original version till late 2010

  5. Dale McNamee

    Next to Sam Cooke's version, this is my favorite version of the song.
