WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN

Live 16 May 1993 version


[Spoken intro:] Ein Gebet für Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Well long as I remember the rain's been pouring down
Clouds of mystery falling, confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages, they try to find some sun
But 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'd watch the tower grow
Bobby planned a new deal, yeah wrapped in golden chains
Lord I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Go!

(Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo)

I heard the singer singing, yeah how we cheered for more
Crowd they'd rush 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
