Fortunate Son
Creedence Clearwater Revival Lyrics


Some folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooh, their red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord

It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Some folks are born, silver spoon in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves, y'all
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yeah

It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no millionaire's son, no, no
It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Yeah, yeah
Some folks inherit star spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask 'em, "How much should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer "More! More! More!", Y'all

It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no military son, son
It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, one
It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no, no, no
It ain't me
It ain't me
I ain't no fortunate son, no, no, no

Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Hoo, they're red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the chief"
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no furtunate one, no
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves, Lord?
But when the taxman come to the door
Lord, the house lookin' like a rummage sale, yeah
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no millionaire's son, no, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no
Yeah-yeah, some folks inherit star-spangled eyes
Hoo, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask 'em, "How much should we give?"
Hoo, they only answer, "More, more, more, more"
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no military son, son, Lord
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, one
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no, no, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate son, no, no, no
It ain't me, it ain't me...

Algunos nacen
Hechos para ondear la bandera
Cuál?
Roja, blanco y azul
Y cuando la banda toca
Saludos al comandante
Te apuntan con el cañón, Señor

No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy hijo de senador
No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy uno afortunado

Algunos nacen
Cuchara de plata en mano
Señor, cómo se llenan el plato
Pero cuando el recaudador
Llama a la puerta
Señor, la casa parece una venta de garaje

No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy hijo de millonario, no
No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy uno afortunado

Algunos heredan
Ojos adornados de estrella
Uh, te envían a la guerra, Señor
Y cuando les preguntas
¿Cuánto debemos dar?
Solo te responden
Más, más, más, más

No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy hijo de militar
No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy uno afortunado

No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy uno afortunado
No es lo mío, no es lo mío
No soy uno afortunado

I am a 70+ year old geezer. I was sent to the gunline in Vietnam in 1972. I lost 23 brothers on the night of October 1, 1972. God bless them. Their names are inscribed on the Vietnam Memorial wall down in D.C. We were NOT "fortunate sons". I was a lower class blue collar kid from Jersey City. I was wounded but survived that carnage. God bless my fallen friends and may we never forget them! Amen.
