    "There But For Fortune" Lyrics


    Show me the prison
    Show me the jail
    Show me the prisoner
    Whose life has gone stale

    And I'll show you the young man
    With some many reasons why
    There but for fortune
    Go you or I

    Show me the alley

    Show me the train
    Show me the hobo
    Who sleeps out in the rain


    Show me the whiskey
    Stains on the floor
    Show me the drunkard
    As he stumbles out the door


    Show me the country
    Where the bombs had to fall
    Show me the ruins
    Of the buildings once so tall

    I'll show you the young land
    With some many reasons why
    There but for fortune
    Go you and I
    You and I
    You and I
