I was Gborn by the river, in a little tent,                                            
Oh and,Am7just like that river, I've beenEmrunning ever since.         
It's been a Glong... a long time Am7coming, but I C7know, B7oh-oh-oh,
 EmA change is gonna come, Goh, yes it will.


[Verse 2]

It's been Gtoo hard living, but I'm afraid to die,
Am7'Cos I don't know what's out there, Embeyond the sky.
It's been a Glong... a long timeAm7coming, but I C7know, B7oh-oh-oh,
EmA change is gonna come,Goh, yes it will.


[Verse 3]

I Ggo to the movie and I go downtown,
Am7Somebody keep telling me, Emdon't hang around.
It's been a Glong... a long time Am7coming, but I C7know, B7oh-oh-oh,                          
EmA change is gonna come, Goh, yes it will.


[Bridge]

Am7Then I go to my Embrother,
And I say; Am7brother, help me Emplease.
But he Am7winds up, Emknockin' me,
A7Back down on my D7knees, oh...


[Verse 4]

There been Gtimes that I thought, I couldn't last for long,
Am7But now I think I'm able to Emcarry on.
It's been a Glong... a long time Am7coming, but I C7know,B7oh-oh-oh,
EmA change is gonna come, Goh, yes it will.
