Words & Music:

John Fogerty


This is fully transcribed in the November/December 2008 issue of Guitar Edge.


Am  F  C  G  C



Someone told me long ago there's a calm before the storm.

G                        C

I know, it's been comin' for some time.


When it's over, so they say, it'll rain a sunny day.

G                         C

I know, shinin' down like water.



F         G              C    C/B      Am  Am/G

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

F         G              C    C/B      Am  Am/G

I want to know, have you ever seen the rain?

F        G                C

Comin' down on a sunny day?


Yesterday, and days before, sun is cold and rain is hard,

I know; been that way for all my time.

'til forever, on it goes through the circle, fast and slow,

I know; it can't stop, I wonder.


CHORUS:  [2x]
