Verse 1:

G         '        C                    G
Long as I remember the rain been comin' down
G                 '       C                G
Clouds of mystery pourin' confusion on the ground
C                    G
Good men through the ages 
C                  G
Tryin' to find the sun
C            D/F#
And I wonder still I wonder
Em             '     G
Who'll stop the rain

Verse 2:

G                 '         C                G
I went down Virginia seeking shelter from the storm
G                Bm      C                 G
Caught up in the fable I watched the tower grow  
C                   G
Five-year plans and new deals
C                 G
Wrapped in golden chains
C             D/F#
And I wonder, still I wonder
Em             '     G
Who'll stop the rain

Bridge: [C G D] D  [Am C Em] Em   [D G   ]  G

Verse 3:

G                 '        C                  G
Heard the singers playin', how we cheered for more
    G                  Bm           C             G
The crowd had rushed together, just tryin to keep warm
C                   G
Still the rain kept pourin'
C            G
Fallin on my ears
C             D/F#
And I wonder, still I wonder
Em               '
Who'll stop the rain...

Who'll Stop The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Who'll Stop The Rain

Lyrically, "Who'll Stop the Rain" breaks into three verses, with a historical, recent past, and present tense approach. All three verses allude to a sense of unending malaise, pondered by "good men through the ages", "Five Year Plans and New Deals/wrapped in golden chains", and the Woodstock generation. The malaise is not defined, but appears to allude to a sense that man's problems have to be dealt with by those who wish to fix them, and that no ancient philosophers, money-promising government, or Flower Power generation can merely push them off by thought, money, or communal love.
