WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN

Live 11 Apr 1993 version


Long as I remember the rain's been falling down
Clouds of mystery falling, confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages try to find some sun
Still I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Go!

Well I went down Virginia seeking shelter from the storm
Caught up in the fable, we watched the towers grow
Well Bobby planned a new deal wrapped in golden chains
Still I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Go!

I heard the singer singing, oh how we cheered for more
Crowd had rushed together, just trying to keep warm
Still the rain kept falling, falling through the years
Still I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Go!

The pro-shot video footage and its soundtracks from the 11 Apr 1993 show in Verona were commercially released in Europe. Since 2005 some enterprising record labels in Europe (mostly in the UK) have been releasing Bruce Springsteen radio and TV broadcasts (and some soundboard recordings) from the seventies, eighties, and nineties. Though these releases are not authorized by Bruce Springsteen or his record company, they are lawful due to a legal loophole in Europe.
