Change Gon' Come (For Hawai'i)

Kimie Miner (Originally written by Sam Cooke)

I was born by the ocean in a little shack 

and to that ocean I can't turn my back.

It's been a long, a long time coming 

But I know a change is gonna come, oh yes it will 

 

It's been too hard living and I'm afraid we'll die

a prisoner in her own home, left to our demise

It's been a long, a long time coming 

But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

 

I was born on this aina, on this sacred ground

so why do I feel like a stranger in my own town

It's been a long, a long time coming 

But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

 

So I go to my mother

I say "mama help me please"

But her hands are empty

she has nothin left for me

 

Oh there are times when I thought

we wouldn't last for long

but I know we're able to carry on

It's been a long, a long time comin

But I know yes I know a change is gonna come

oh I know yes I know a change gon come,

I know a change is gonna come.


Living In The City

Amaj7 // G#7 // C#m /// B / Amaj7 // G#7 // C#m ////

Verse 1

Well I woke to the sound of screaming sirens

Screamin' "the worlds on fire!"

And the neighbor's baby's cryin' cause they're out of formula

So I hide under the blankets for 5 minutes more

Then I'm out the door...

I'm livin' in the city, where everyday's a new day

C#m                                                               E

I chose this life for me, but it's cold and lonely

G#m               Amaj7                               G#7

I'm livin' in the city, where everyday gets harder

C#m

I chose this life for me, and it's where I wanna be

Verse 2

Well I met him on the J Train from Brooklyn

He had shades on, but I could see right through him

He was a man with a plan and yah, he made it happen...

So we hide under the blankets for 5 minutes more

Then he was out the door...
