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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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
