Song title: Who'll stop the rain?

(Fogerty) by Creedence Clearwater Revival (Fantasy 637), 1970

Who'll stop the rain?

Long as I remember
The rain been falling down
Clouds of myst’ry pourin’
Confusion on the ground

Good men through the ages
They try to find the sun
But Lord I wonder, still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain

I went down Virginia
Seekin’ shelter from the storm
Just caught up in the fable
I watched the tower grow
Five-year plan and new deals
Wrapped in golden chains
Still I wonder, yes I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain

Heard the singers playin’
How we cheered for more
The crowd had rushed together
Tryin’ to keep warm
Still the rain keeps falling
Fallin’ through the years

And I wonder, still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain
I wanna know, baby I wanna know

Notes: A CCR classic, often played upon crowd request in raining days shows….
