Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
Some folks are born to wave the flag
Ooh, they're red, white and blue

Left allemande the corner, dosado you own
Allemande left and you weave
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
Swing your girl around and promenade
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads couples promenade halfway round you know
Down the middle square thru
All the way around right & left thru
Veer left, couples circulate
Half tag, scoot back
Corner swing, take her by the hand and promenade
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
(Musical break)
Allemande left and you weave the ring
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no
Swing your girl around and promenade
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no


CLOSER   

4 boys you promenade go once around the ring
Back home and give your girl a swing
Join hands circle to the left go walking round
Allemande left and you weave the ring
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son
Swing your girl around and promenade
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no


TAG

Sides face, grand square
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate son, no
It ain't me, it ain't me
I ain't no fortunate one, no

Fortunate Son
 
 

Some folks are born made to wave the flag
Ooh, they're red, white and blue
And when the band plays "Hail to the chief"
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no

Yeah!
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh
But when the taxman comes to the door
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes

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

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord
And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer More! more! more! yoh

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, one

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no

Lyrics by John Fogerty.
Recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
