    There But for Fortune - by Phil Ochs Phil

    Show me a prison, show me a jail
    Show me a pris'ner whose face has grown pale

    And I'll show you a young man
    With many reasons why
    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 many reasons why
    There but for fortune, go you or I

    Show me the whiskey stains on the floor
    Show me a drunk as he stumbles out the door

    And I'll show you a young man
    With many reasons why
    There but for fortune, go you or I

    Show me a country where the bombs had to fall
    Show me the ruins of buildings so tall

    And I'll show you a young land
    With many reasons why
    There but for fortune, go you or I
    You or I
