(CHORUS) It's been a long, a long time coming But I know a change gonna come Oh, yes, it will It's been too hard living But I'm afraid to die I don't know what's up there Beyond the sky (CHORUS) I go to the movie And I go downtown Somebody keep telling me Don't hang around (CHORUS) Then I go to my brother And I say, brother, help me please But he winds up knocking me Back down on my knees Oh, there've been times that I Thought I couldn't last for long But now I think I'm able to carry on (CHORUS)
