There's an old friend that
Something that touched my heart

In a little tent
I've been runnin ever since
But I know my change is gonna come

But I'm afraid to die
What was up there
It's been a long, a long time comin'
Oh yeah
I went, I went to my brother
Could you help me, please?
I'd like to but I'm not able
I was right back down
Yes I was, oh
There've been times that I thought
But somehow right now I believe

And oh it's been an uphill journey
But I know, I know, I know
I know my change is gonna come
Yes I did
I had to give up right
For what I knew was wrong
It's sure's been a long way comin

Every step of the way
This evenin' my change is come
Yeah I tell you that
