Would like to have the lyrics to an old time song, "Fortune". One part of the song goes, "Fortune I had it, fortune I lost it.

Once I had a fortune, I put it in my trunk,
I lost it all a‑gambling one night when I was drunk.

Wish I had a pretty little hog/horse, corn to feed him on,
And a pretty little wife around the farm to feed him when I'm gone.

Oh once I had a fortune, I put it in my trunk,
I lost it all a‑gamblin' one night when I was drunk.

Chorus

Fortune I had it, fortune I lost it,
Fortune I lost it one night when I was drunk.

Once I had a fortune but now I've lost it all,
Drinkin' and a gambling and playin' at the ball.

I'm packin' up my suitcase and now I say goodbye,
I'm gonna live a gamblin' man until the day I die.

(The above is from

www.ibiblio.org/fiddlers/FORK_FOT.htm

and there is lotsa info about the song there.

Haven't had time to read all the info on the song, so it ain't a LYRIC ADD just yet. Thanks.
