There But for Fortune (lyrics) by Phil Ochs

Written in 1963 by the brilliant singer/songwriter Phil Ochs. The ultimate hymn to compassion. I heard the song first in its most popular version sung by Joan Baez

Show me a prison, show me a jail
Show me a prisoner whose face is growing pale

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

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