Lyrics

Some folks are born, made to wave the flag
Ooo, their red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the Chief"
Ooo, they point the cannon at you, Lord

To all of you who think this is a song for Vietnam vets: this is a Vietnam protest song, it's not for the vets at all.
Awesome drums.
Charlie don't surf in black ops
<3
I figured that out when I was five I hear you buddy
No s***
Anarchy by invasion of beavers spread the word
It sounds like the rich hide from taxman and going to war. Sounds about right
Anyone else think of Forrest Gump?
420Dean family TREE 420Fucking Gifts from Gods children world wide Peace Please God RESPECT wemon God's creatures world wide web Peace 2PAC Sean
CCR - this song can be related to by a lot of VETs!
Charlie don't surf.
Lets play ball!!!....t h a t ' s what it reminds me of!!! :-)
Yep Viet nam .........thi s song is for all the Viet nam vets........

When ever I hear this song I think of my self leaning out the door of a Huey helicopter with a m60 in my hands
It ain't me ;)
Love that guitar
@johncotrez1 2 0 - Definitely waaaay up there along with For All Its Worth and Ohio----but nothing beats Volunteers ;) @simsmb755 and krayzygeof - the fight for our rights may not be as IN YOUR FACE now as it was then, but the fight to preserve our Bill of Rights does go have faith in that. @j_h_bmx It is you who should Shut the F**k Up, yes, it is a Great song, but it would never have been written if Nam wasn't going on. Peace Brothers.... . b e glad the draft is over and now only the ones who h
I always think of Forrest Gump and COD Black Ops
Defiantly my wrestling run out song
CCR one of there best songs
Cod: black ops!!!!!!!
I heard another version of this song and it wasn't good. but this version of this song is GREAT.
Actually I think is in like every Vietnam movie......e v e r . . .
Any one else thought of Forrest Gump the Vietnam scene when they heard this
Funny thing is, I have played in shows before crowds roughly the same size. Maybe they were taller, but the same in number.
So glad I found this song I have been wanting to find it for a couple of years
This song makes me c*m patriotism.
pattigarlow
On staind radio?
pattigarlow
The origins of punk rock!
The start almost sounds like No Time.
Still played on the radio's when I was deployed not but a year past. How can a song still be played by troops in combat decades later. Timeless art of protest.
Always think of chopper gunners in Vietnam
Forest Gump
Yes it is 19!
Love this song so much.
Love this song but why is it on eminem radio
19ninety.fiv e
I just love how many people misinterpret this song and thinks it's patriotic when it's actually a war protest song.
I'm not fortunate but ill lay down my life to put the enemy's of our flag in a grave
I'm no fortunate one. Love this song
merynn04
Awesome song
merynn04
Awesome song
Viet fricken nam
Fricken Viet Nam!
6000cliffwoo d
The Vietnam War theme song
6000cliffwoo d
'NAM.
CCR and ZZ TOP....the south's answer....
I swear to god if anyone says they came here from black ops I'm going to lose my s**t.....
Krayzgeoff u need to just shut up nobody cares about politics it's a great song and it was on cod no big deal so shut up
This defiantly political song shouldn't make people think so much of CoD as it should GWB/Cheney and all their chicken-hawk friends. Originally written about Nixxon & Company, its continued relevance shows how very little America's military-ind u s t r i a l complex and classist s**t changed from 1968 to 2008.
forest gump black ops and Vietnam
classic
