I was born by the river in a little tent
It's been a long time, a long time coming

'Cause I don't know what's up there, beyond the sky
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
I go to the movie and I go downtown
It's been a long, a long time coming

And I say brother help me please
Back down on my knees, oh
There have been times that I thought I couldn't last for long
It's been a long, a long time coming
