This song speaks to me, I feel like I can relate.
National anthem
Ohh.....That voice it's been duplicated but not really. No one can sound like Mr Sam Cooke; he was great he had a unique voice, one of the pioneers of soul. A great voice silence too soon.
Yes it is.

I'm going through and have been through hard things in my life and from this song, I have a reason to live!
This is an awesome old great song. No one has sung it better than Sam Cooke. Funny...we'r e still saying the same thing...that a change is gonna come. It sometimes does, but then sometimes we want even more.
Btw... if you wanna buy this Sam Cooke album...you gotta go to the wrecka stowe...
I feel this one for real... :( it makes me sad...
jayboy778
My favorite song
This song is even true for the time we live in now.....I know a change gonna come.
All the artists I've heard cover this song do a marvelous job. It's nearly impossible to ruin such a beautifully written song. Mr. Cooke did a legendary job.
Love this song.
what a true song
I remember hearing this played by my mother an father when i was a lillte boy .It alway made feel something deep down inside my soul
