#ItAintMe

Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Ooh, 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 fortunate one, no

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don’t they help themselves, oh
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes
It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no millionaire’s son, no
It ain’t me, it ain’t me, I ain’t no fortunate one, no

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask them, “How much should we give?”
Ooh, they only answer “More! More! More!” yoh

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

  1. It's about the draft in Vietnam, yes. But it can be an example for how the rich folks always seem to have their interest put ahead of everyone else's, and that poor people are people too with their own struggles and dreams and goals. Hence the video.

    Still would have liked to see some Hueys tho

  2. Movie director's guide on how to end a movie:
    – Movie about love, but sad end:
    My Heart Will Go On, Celine Dion
    – Movie about love, but happy end:
    I'm A Believer, The Monkees
    – Movie with happy end:
    Here Comes The Sun, The Beatles
    – Bad ass action movie:
    Fortunate Son, Creedence Clearwater Revival

  3. The video tried to relate this to modern times but utterly failed. The song is still good tho. The song is obviously about Vietnam, war, and economic inequality in relation to forced military service.

  4. Ya'll should'a came to us in the Army.

    We may not have Hueys. But Black Hawks can do the same deal. And have some gunnery operations in Afghanistan… Troops Assaulting out the sides, or landing in a combat zone…

    Same deal, different warzone. Would've been better than… whatever this is…

  5. Thank you for visually priming us for our Mexican majority future. I'm sure they will be listening to a whole lot of Creedence Clearwater revival because that's what Latinos do right?
