I was 12 when this came out.  Little burger joint next to my house.  I can still hear this song drifting into my window at night from the juke box.

Burton doing his song in a bluesy style.  My 3rd favourite version, if you don't watch the video.  Just listen.  Seriously.  Don't watch.

Best version ever?
https://youtu.be/ABt8u8UDurs  almost 20 minutes worth including the then required drum solo.  Unfortunately the clip end abruptly.  On the album it flows right into Pain Train.  Such a great album.

Live at the Paramount,  in Seattle I think.  Huge album for me when I was a kid.  

Just my two cents worth.{#Guitarist}

This guy sounds a lot like Creedence? I did not do my research to find out if it's him or not. Anyone?

Nope. It was a particular quality of singing at the time but  two bands are such a different sound to my ear. 

John Fogerty -CCR An American band out of the Sacramento area of California. 

This song -"american woman" is by Canadian group -the Guess Who. 

Burton Cummings was the singer for the Guess Who.

So I was, I guess, about 13 years old and my mom brought home a bag of stuff from her friend's house. Her son moved out and left some things. I rummaged through the bag and found a cool t-shirt and a cassette tape or two. One of them was a recording of Firesign Theater's Nick Danger album which I set to memorizing. Another was this album. I have loved it ever since. It was my introduction to "grown up" music at the time. It was about 1975 or so.

The other album was Three Dog Night's "It Ain't Easy". Just FYI. 

 
Three Dog Night—great band, sadly semi-forgotten. (BillG: NO Three Dog Night on RP? WTF?). That album you scored looks pretty good and has my favorite TDN song, "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)". Randy Newman wrote that and a few others for the band, IIRC. 

I always associated The Guess Who, this song especially, with schlocky K-Tel compilation records. You had to survive K-Tel's carpet-bombing ad campaigns on UHF stations to watch the good stuff like The Three Stooges or Looney Tunes. The band was better than that, but like TDN they got pigeonholed and dipped in amber.

Rock and Roll baby! 
I like Bill's comment about it being "Social Commentary" and I never heard this intro before. 

I like the comment below ->
"Classic indeed...one that didn't need a re-do by Lenny Kravitz whatsoever!"

I think it is a good cover especially when you add Prince Rodgers Nelson --->

Ugh. This is a substantial letdown after the past few songs.

I expect Canada has smaller death count from guns than America. Nothing to be jealous about there eh ?

Great song BTW.

Never gets lame asking people to guess who is playing this. 

I kind of like Canadian acts, Neil Young, RUSH, Leonard Cohen,The Band,Cowboy Junkies, Daniel Lanois and William Shatner.

 
What, no Nickelback?  {#Propeller}

Say Boys from Canada... and every province has women who are as dofferent one from another as the scotch whiskeys or craft beers..

Every provinces and every city has a different culture. Similar at one level but very different as to individual culures..

Shall we have some B.T.O from B.C. on next-?

OTOH, the song makes sense even to American men...

Right where it belongs. Let's hope that was a dumpster.
