John Fogerty with Bob Seger - Who'll Stop the Rain




"Who'll Stop the Rain" is a song written by John Fogerty and originally recorded by Creedence Clearwater Revival for their 1970 album Cosmo's Factory. Backed with "Travelin' Band", it was one of three double-sided singles from that album to reach the top five on the Billboard Pop Singles chart and the first of two to reach the No. 2 spot on the American charts, alongside "Lookin' Out My Back Door". In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked it No. 188 on its "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list.


On Fogerty's 2013 album Wrote a Song for Everyone, he re-recorded the song as a duet with Bob Seger.







Lyrics


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.
