Lyrics: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
And there but for
fortune
May 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
And there but
for fortune
May go 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
And there but for fortune
May go you or I

Show me the country where the
bombs had to fall
Show me the ruins of the buildings once so tall
And I'll show you a
young land with so many reasons why
And there but for fortune
May go you or I -- or I
