THERE BUT FOR FORTUNE
( Phil Ochs)

Show me a prison, show me a jail
Show me a prison man whose face is growing pale
And I'll show you a young man with so many reasons why
And there, but for fortune, go you or I

Show me an alley, show me a train
Show me a hobo who sleeps out in the rain
And I'll show you a young man with so many reasons why
And there, but for fortune, go you or I

Show me the whiskey stains on the floor
Show me a drunken man as he stumbles out the door
And I'll show you a young man with so many reasons why
And there, but for fortune, go you or I

Show me a country where the bombs had to fall
Show me the ruins of the buildings once so tall
And I'll show you a young land with so many reasons why
And there, but for fortune, go you or I
