There but for fortune, go you or I.....



Lyrics:

Show me a prison, show me a jail
Show me a prisoner whose face has grown pale
And I'll show you a young man
With so many reasons why
There but for fortune, go you or I

Show me an alley, show me a train
Show me the hobo who sleeps out in the rain

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

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

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

1. Poignant, moving song, beautifully performed. A reminder that all of us should be ...

 

... humble and compassionate.

The cartoon is also brilliant.

Thanks kpete.
