I was born by the river,
In a little tent,

 Oh just like that river,

I've, been running ever since.

It's been a long, a long time coming,

But I know, oh-oo-oh,
Em                          G
 A change is gonna come, oh yes it will.

It's been too hard living,
But I'm afraid to die,
Am7
 'Cos I don't know what's out there;
Em
 Beyond the sky.

 And I ask him to help me please.

Am7                    Em
 And he just winds up;
Knockin' me,

 Back down on my knees,	oh;

There been times when I thought,

I'm able to carry on.
