I was kind of immune to Creedence Clearwater Revival during their heyday, but in retrospect, John Fogerty was among the rock-n-roll singing gods, and "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" one of the great classics of rock-n-roll songs and rock-n-roll singing. I don't think I could live very well without this.

I've always had a soft spot in my heart for CCR. "Fortunate Son" is a favorite and still resonates today.

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

Ah, the 80s.

<--- PS - I'm pretty sure that's Brooks Robinson at 2:08, so all is forgiven.

And the next verse:

Some folks are born, silver spoon in hand

Lord, don't they help themselves, y'all

But when the taxman comes to the door

Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yeah

Just as true today as it was the day it was written.
