A change s gonna come

	  		       E           E7 
I was born by the river in a little tent 
     A                              C#m           B 
And just like that river I've been running ever since 
             E          A 
It's been a long time coming 
       G#                    C#m   A  B       E 
But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will 
 
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                     C#m 
And then I go to see my brother 
 F#m                      C#m 
And I ask him to help me please 
 F#m                   C#m 
And he just winds up knockin' me 
 F#             B      B7 
Back down on my knees 
 
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.
