Creedance Clearwater Revival – Fortunate Son lyrics

Some folks are born, made to wave the flag,
Ooh they're red white and blue
And when the band play hail to the chief
They point the cannons at you, ya'll

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

Some folks are born, silver spoon in hand
Lawd (lord) don't they help themselves, ya'll
But when the tax man comes to the door
Lowd the house looka like a rummage sale, yea

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaires son, naw naw
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one naw

Yea, some folks inherit, star spangled eyes
Ohh they'll send you down ta war, ya
And when you ask'em, how much should we give
Oooh the only answer's more, more, more ya'll

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