Show me a prison, show me a jail:

Show me a prison, show me a jail,

G Em Am D

Show me a prisoner whose face has gone pale

Em C Am

And I’ll show you a young man with so many reasons why

Bm G Am D

And there but for fortune, may go you or I

Show me the alley, show me the train,

Show me a hobo who sleeps out in the rain,

And I’ll show you a young man with so many reasons why

There but for fortune, may go you or go I — you and I.

Show me the whiskey stains on the floor,

Show me the dunken man as he stumbles out the door,

And I’ll show you a young man with so many reasons why

There but for fortune, may go you or go I — you and I.

[Extra verse… written by Noel Paul Stookey]

Show me the famine, show me the frail

Eyes with no future that show how we failed

And I’ll show you the children with so many reasons why

There but for fortune, go you or I.

Show me the country where bombs had to fall,

Show me the ruins of buildings once so tall,

And I’ll show you a young land with so many reasons why

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

You and I,

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

Songwriters: OCHS, PHIL

It’s Your Love

It is one of the country music oldies and sung by Tim McGraw. The song was released in 1997 and got nomination for Grammy award.

Dancing in the dark

Middle of the night

Taking your heart

And holding it tight

Emotional touch

Touching my skin

And askin’ you to do

What you’ve been doing

All over again

Oh, it’s a beautiful thing

Don’t think I can keep it all in

I’ve just gotta let you know

What it is that won’t let me go

It’s your love

It just does something to me

It sends a shock right through me

I can’t get enough

And if you wonder

About the spell I’m under

Oh it’s your love

Better than I was

More than I am

And all of this happened

By taking your hand

And who I am now

Is who I wanted to be

And now that we’re together

I’m stronger than ever, I’m happy and free

Oh, it’s a beautiful thing

Don’t think I can keep it all in

And if you ask me why I’ve changed

All I gotta do is say your sweet name

It’s your love

It just does something to me

It sends a shock right through me

I can’t get enough

And if you wonder

About the spell I’m under

Oh it’s your love

Oh, it’s a beautiful thing

Don’t think I can keep it all in

I’ve just gotta let you know

What it is that won’t let me go

It’s your love

It just does something to me

It sends a shock right through me

I can’t get enough

And if you wonder

About the spell I’m under

Oh it’s your love

It’s your love

It’s your love
