Joan Baez - There But For Fortune tab

This is a song originally by Phil Ochs and covered by Joan Baez. Listen to the 
Joan Baez version to figure out the fingerpicking, it's not exactly this but it's 
very, very close. It's a lot easier than it looks once you figure it out.
Capo- 4th fret

Verses 2 and 3 are with the same chords and picking. Here are the lyrics:

Verse 2
  Show me the alley, Show me the train
  Show me the hobo who sleeps out in the rain
  And I'll show you a young man with so many reasons why
  There but for fortune go you or I, hmm-hmm hmmm

Verse 3
  Show me the whiskey stains on the floor
  Show me the drunkard as he stumbles out the door
  And I'll show you a young man with so many reasons why
  There but for fortune go you or I, hmm-hmm hmmm

Verse 4 is the same until the last line. Here is the last line for verse 4:
