Lyrics: Man of No Good Fortune

You’ll see him where the sun don’t shine
Scuttlin’ down the lane
Huddled in some doorway there
Sheltering from the rain

Who knows what he might have been
Lord of everything
Sufferin’ in some twist of fate
The arrows and the slings The arrows and the slings

Chorus:
He’s just a man of no good fortune
We turn our heads away as he walks by
How could you know unless you’d been there
But for the grace of God go I
But for the grace of God go I

He might ask you for a cigarette
You could spare a buck or two
Or pass by on the other side
I’ll leave that up to you

When the deal has all been done
Fortunes won and lost
The cards can often favour fools
While good men count the cost
