Lyrics


As long as I remember

The rain's been comin' down

Clouds of mystery 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 then 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?
