WHO'LL STOP THE RAIN

Live 24 Jun 1993 version


Hey long as I remember the rain's been falling down
Clouds of mystery falling, confusion on the ground
Yeah good men through the ages, they try to find some sun
Lord I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Yeah!

Well I went down Virginia seeking shelter from the storm
Got caught up in the fable, we watched the tower grow
Well Bobby planned a new deal, yeah wrapped in golden chains
Yeah then I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Yeah!

(Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo)

Heard the singers singing, yeah how we cheered for more
The crowd had rushed together, they're just trying to keep warm
Yeah but still the rain kept falling, yeah falling through the years
And I wonder, Lord I wonder, who'll stop the rain
Yeah!

The 24 Jun 1993 Show

The 24 Jun 1993 show at Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NJ, was the second-to-last of the World Tour 1992-1993. Billed as "A Concert To Fight Hunger", it raised money for several food banks and relief organisations in New Jersey and New York. As Backstreets magazine reported, the Community FoodBank Of New Jersey, the Food And Hunger Hotline, and World Hunger Year each reaped more than $159,000 to further their efforts to eradicate hunger.

The show featured guest appearances by Joe Ely, Southside Johnny, the Miami Horns, and several members of the disbanded E Street Band. The setlist was notable for its rariries and one-off performances.
