CEASE AND DESIST

Fortunate Son

For 45, who obviously has not listened to the words of this 1969 song, we share this country-rock classic. You missed all the fuss? The orange one is playing the song at his rallies and the songwriter, John Fogerty, objects. His lawyer has sent the Trump campaign a cease and desist letter.

“The fact that Mr. Trump fans the flames of hatred, racism and fear while rewriting recent history, is even more reason to be troubled by his use of my song,” the singer-songwriter wrote in a Tweet.

The song was released in September 1969 as the B side of “Down on the Corner.” It became a hit in its own right and the double-sided hit made it to number 3 on the Billboard chart in December.

Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don’t they help themselves, oh
B
ut when the tax men come to the door
Lord, the house look a like a rummage sale, yes

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

Vote November 3rd.

  1. When you are going to play it at your rally, at least have someone explain it to you before you prove what a total moron you really are.

  2. So that’s who Don Jr was talking about when he said, “People are truly morons.” His own father. I should have known….

  3. It’s a great song and could have been written about Trump but he is too dumb to get it. I believe that he’s played other songs at his rallies and been asked by the artists to stop it too. Can’t think who at present though.

  6. It’s hard to believe that he could so totally misunderstand the song. It’s so anti-45! I do love Credence!
