I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh, and just like the river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon' come, oh yes it will
It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
Cause I don't know what's up there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gon' come, oh yes it will
I go to the movie and I go down town
Somebody keep telling me don't hang around it's been a long, a long time coming But I know a chang

This has to be the anthem of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's. I have always loved and respected this song by Sam Cooke.

Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. Let us, your servants, see you work again; let our children see your glory. And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!

magnificent song. magnificent talent. competitor with Marvin as the best of his generation. shot to death by some anonymous girl in a sordid affair. another one of the irreplaceabl e losses that have deprived us of a body of work that would have enriched us, and be listened to, forever.
