    This is an antiestablishment song of defiance and blue-collar pride, both anti-Washington and against the Vietnam War. John Fogerty and Doug Clifford both enlisted in the Army Reserves in 1966 (to avoid being drafted and shipped to Vietnam) and were discharged in 1968 after serving their military commitments. "The song speaks more to the unfairness of class than war itself," Fogerty said. "It's the old saying about rich men making war and poor men having to fight them."

    When interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine, John Fogerty was asked what inspired this song. His response: "Julie Nixon was hanging around with David Eisenhower, and you just had the feeling that none of these people were going to be involved with the war. In 1969, the majority of the country thought morale was great among the troops, and like 80% of them were in favor of the war. But to some of us who were watching closely, we just knew we were headed for trouble." - https://bit.ly/3sEAiUl

    Hey John and good morning from the shop! Since your doing American and election themed stuff I was wondering if you could play Fortunate Son by CCR. Enjoy your day! -Zachary in Charleston SC -----------------------------------------
