A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
“…It’s been too hard living,
but I’m afraid to die,
I don’t know what’s up there
beyond the sky...”
Sam Cooke's song "A Change Is Gonna Come" may not have been a major chart hit, but its historical significance has grown over the passing decades.
The song was issued in 1964. Cooke's lyrics deal with the hardships experienced by African-Americans at the time. It was soon adopted as a civil rights anthem.
Cooke's verses describe a variety of struggles, but there is an optimistic note. The influential soul vocalist sees a brighter future for his community.
