A Change Is Gonna Come

Lyrics

I was born by a river in this little old tent
Oh just like this river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know, but I know a change is gotta come

I was born by a river in this little old tent
Oh just like this river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know, but I know a change is gotta come

During my college years and courtship with my future husband Otis helped connect our souls with his soulful music. Oh what wonderful years and how we miss him today! Still. Listen when I want to remember how it felt to feel young, alive, and just knew life would be like that forever! It still is in our souls. RIP Otis!! God bless Otis and Jerry Butler!

Otis was my favorite artist way back then. I'll never forget the day he died. I sat in my dorm room, cried, and played his records straight over and over again. It was such a loss for all of music... He was such a vibrant and talented man. I still play your music..RIP, Otis.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
