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"
They point the cannon right at you

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

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, dont they help themselves
But when the tax man comes to the door,
Lord the house looks like a rummage sale


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

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

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

It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one

 

這首歌是Creedence Clearwater Revival所唱的,收錄於1969年發行的《Willy and the Poor Boys》專輯裡。這首歌是因為David Eisenhower而寫下的,也就是美國總統Dwight David Eisenhower的孫子,他在1968年娶了美國總統Richard Nixon的女兒Julie Nixon。John Fogerty 告訴 Rolling Stone:「Julie Nixon與David Eisenhower交往,在那個時候你只會有個感覺,這些人都沒有涉入在戰爭之中。在1969年,美國大部分的人認為道德在軍隊中是重要的,有百分之八十的人都參與這場戰爭。但我們被緊緊看管,知道有所麻煩。」

在越戰期間,這首歌非常流行,在越戰的電影及電玩遊戲出現,它代表了一個男生被徵召。它大聲疾呼反對越戰。它以平民百姓的觀點來看這場戰爭,都是這些平民百姓在越戰中對抗敵人,而不是那些有特權的人。這首歌的作詞人John Fogerty,代表他對當時那些假道學及特權人士非常反感,只會高唱愛國主義,但當要挺身而戰卻不見人影。
