Phil Ochs

Phil Ochs - There But for Fortune

rate me

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
