: "the thoughts behind this song - it was a lot of anger. so it was the vietnam war going on... now ı was drafted and they're making me fight, and no one has actually defined why. so this was all boiling inside of me and ı sat down on the edge of my bed and out came "ıt ain't me, it ain't me, ı ain't no senator's son!" you know, it took about 20 minutes to write the song." demiş.
ve eklemiş: "fortunate son wasn't really inspired by any one event. julie nixon*
