One of the most classic examples of Americana - the time, the place, the music, the fear, the optimism, the Moment---whi c h still reverberates throughout our lives every day and every second--in a 2 1/2 minute ditty by a band pretending to be from the bayou :-)

Fortunate Son sums what you felt stressing out whether or not you would be drafted and if you got drafted would you wind up on the meat grinder in Vietnam. Ya it was like that.

Just a great all-american rocker by one of the best bands of the time. Really captures the times. Makes me think of muscle cars and rock and roll.
