NOTES:
1969 single (from the album Willy and the Poor Boys) featuring Fortunate Son which was covered by Cat Power on the Jukebox album (RELEASE / LYRICS).

“John Fogerty says that the song was indirectly inspired by David Eisenhower, the grandson of President Dwight David Eisenhower who married Julie Nixon, the daughter of President Richard Nixon in 1968 (Eisenhower later enlisted in the Navy Reserve).

This song was popular during the Vietnam War and is included in several Vietnam films and computer games. The song symbolizes the thoughts of a man who is being drafted. This spoke out against the war in Vietnam. It is sung from the perspective of one of these men (who is not the son of a Senator, millionaire, or military leader, thus not a “fortunate son”), who ends up fighting in the Vietnam War.” – .wikipedia.org
