G                G7                       
I was born by the river in a little tent
Am                                          Em          
  And just like that river I've been running  ever since
            G    Am7       
It's been a long a long time coming
      C B7 Em                              G
But I know      a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

G               G7
It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die
Am                                  Em    
  Cause I don't know what's out there  beyond the sky
            G       Am
It's been a long, a long time coming
      C B7 Em                            G
But I know    a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

G               G7
I go to the movies, and I go downtown, 
Am                           Em              
  Somebody keep telling don't   hang around, 
            G       Am
It's been a long, a long time coming
       C B7 Em                            G
But I know     a change is gonna come, oh yes it will



Am                         G
   And then I go to see my brother
Am                       G
   And I ask him to help me please
Am                 Em
   But he winds up knockin' me
A7                 D
   Back down on my knees

G                         G7
There've been times I thought I couldn't   last for long
Am                         Em
   But now I think I'm able   to carry on
            G      Am
It's been a long, a long time coming
       C B7 Em                            G
But I know     a change is gonna come, oh yes it will

END!!!

Fun Fact-
The Piano used to play this song, (footage by crackerfarm) was played in such
albums such as "Country Was" and "A Carolina Jubilee". It was then auctioned 
off to raise money for a women's shelter, the proceeds benefiting battered 
women. Seth also recently donated his own hair to "Wigs for Kids" an 
organization that gives children with cancer wigs...

About the artist behind A Change Is Gonna Come Chords:

The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band that originated in Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Seth Avett and Scott Avett who play the guitar and banjo, respectively, and Bob Crawford, who plays the stand-up bass. They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. Risen from the ashes of Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, The Avett Brothers combine old-time country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "Heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." The group themselves eschews labels, feeling that "none would do the music the justice. It's simply left up to each person to extract his or her own account from the Avett's music."

In the past year, The Avett Brothers have gone from relative unknowns to the poster children of a brand new and rapidly growing genre of American music. And while critics and fans alike have trouble agreeing on just what that genre should be called (indie roots, folk-punk, grungegrass, the list goes on and on), no one seems to have any trouble agreeing on the fact that The Avett Brothers are taking American roots music to brand new and exciting places.

Their live performances showcase their use of three-part harmony and southern rock feel, and are admired for being intense, energetic, and soulful.

The band are currently signed to Ramseur Records, based in Concord, NC. Other artists on the label include The Everybodyfields, Bombadil, Martin Stephenson and Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers.
