Thread Name: Lyr Req: There But for Fortune (Phil Ochs)
Subject: RE: There but for fortune
I think it's a great song, Shambles. The tune is quite beautiful, the words simple and to the point. But I think the sentiment behind it elevates it to greatness- we are all linked by the common bonds of our humanity, however separate we may seem. This is the great message of the Folk music of that era.
