[Verse I]
G5                    F5
 Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
C5                          G5
 Ooh, that red, white and blue
G5                         F5
 And when the band plays "hail to the chief",
C5                          G5
 Ooh, they point the cannon at you

[Chorus]
G5           D5           C5                 G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I'm no senator's son
G5           D5           C5                 G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I'm no fortunate one

[Verse II]
G5                    F5
 Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
C5                          G5
 Lord, don't they help themselves, yea
G5                    F5
 But when the taxman comes to the door,
C5                              G5
 Lord, the house lookin' like a rummage sale, yeah
[Chorus]
G5           D5           C5                         G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no
G5           D5           C5                    G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no

*G5  *keep on playing G5

G5                   F5         
 Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
C5                              G5
 Ooh, and they send you down to war, lord
G5                        F5
 But when you ask them, "how much should we give?"
C5                        G5
 Ooh, the only answer is more, more, more!

[Chorus]
G5           D5           C5                G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I'm no military son
G5           D5           C5                    G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no
G5           D5           C5                 G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I'm no senator's son
G5           D5           C5                    G5
 It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no!
