Who'll Stop The Rain?

Words & Music:

John Fogerty


Intro 2x

   G                                   Em








G                   C                   G

Long as I remember, rain's been falling down.

G                         C                G

Clouds of mystery pourin' confusion on the ground.

C                    G    C                  G

Good men through the ages tryin' to find the sun.

C            D               Em              G

And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain?


I went down Virginia seeking shelter from the storm.

Caught up in a fable, 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' playing, how we cheered for more.

The crowd had rushed together, just tryin to keep warm.

Still the rain kept fallin', fallin' on my ears.

And I wonder, still I wonder who'll stop the rain...?


G   Em  [repeat and out]
