Ted Olson and David Bois - Our Lawyers

Without question one of my top five favorite songs is Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come'. There was been great version. Never will forget at one LGBT fundraiser for "Fight Back New York" when Cheyenne Jackson brought the house down singing this song.

Today we have two of the best lawyers in the nation presenting our case for freedom before the Supreme Court of the United States.  No matter what happens today or at the end of June we will be closer to freedom and full equality.  A change is definiately gonna come!  

What a perfect way to start this historic day with our brother Cheyenne Jackson singing this amazing song.

Here are the lyrics:

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 gonna 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 gonna come, oh yes it will

I go to the movie and I go downtown somebody keep telling me don't hang around
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say brother help me please
But he winds up knockin' me
Back down on my knees

There been times that I thought I couldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
