(J. Fogerty)
Long as I remember The rain been comin' down.
Clouds of myst'ry pourin' Confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, Tryin' to find the sun;
And I wonder, Still I wonder, Who'll stop the rain.
I went down Virginia, Seekin' shelter from the storm.
Caught up in the fable, I watched the tower grow.
Five year plans and new deals, Wrapped in golden chains.
And I wonder, Still 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 kept pourin', Fallin' on my ears.
And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain.

    This is all political, from the 60's, the Viet Nam War, Civil Rights, Great Society, the Kennedy's and the King assassinations, and the despair that the failure of most of these events engendered.
    I am a Viet Nam vet and I was there for all of it, and this song has a lot of meaning for me.
