I've heard that a lot of CCR songs are anti war. Are there any CCR gurus that can confirm this and let me know which songs and how they are anti war.

Fortunate son is apparently an anti-war song. It is such a mad song. Listen to the lyrics closely or look them up and study them and u can figure out what they r on about with its anti-war status!!!

CCR is no different than the majority of rock bands during the Vietnam era. Fortunate Son is undeniably anti-war. But anti-war is just a small part of the anti-'status-quo' message of CCR and the woodstock era bands.

Yea, Fortunate Son is an anti-war song.
I just don't know much about "Long As I Can See the Light" and "Someday Never Comes". Are they anti-war songs too?

'Run through the jungle's real anti-war. Not only does is concern the fears of the Marines but also the suffering of the vietnamese people.

Who`ll Stop The Rain has been interpreted as an anti -war - song.
But others interpret it as an anti - drog - song.
Maybe it`s both.

obviously "fortunate son" by CCR is anti- war. The song is about the draft situation during the vietnam war. One could 'dodge the draft' through political connections(such as being a senator's son), or by paying a sum of money. The lyrics 'it ain't me it ain't me, i ain't no senator's son. it ain't me, it ain't me, i ain't no fortunate one no.' refers to that correlation. this is just an example of part of the reason's it's anti-war. you can find the rest......there's many more.

Anti-War: Fortunate Son, Run through the jungle, Who'll stop the rain (against politics in general), Bad moon rising (perhaps), Effigy (maybe) and offcourse Deja vu (all over again) - the title cut of John Fogerty's new album.

Listening this morning to "Have you ever seen the rain", made me ask myself, is the song talking about Vietnam, soldiers in the jungles, the climate there can allow sun and rain. I would like some of your insights.

I could see 'Have You Ever Seen The Rain?' as an anti-war song. I've always depicted it as a soldiers point of view in the jungle as well. The climate there seems to vary for sure. One minute it's raining, and the next the sun comes out. I've never been there, but I've read alot about the climate, and way of life over there.

Take Care,
Something
