Other songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival performed by Oracle:

Long as I remember
The rain's been coming down
Clouds of mystery fallin'
Confusion on the ground

Good men through the ages
Tryin' to find the sun
And I wonder
Still I wonder
Who'll stop the rain?

I went down Virginia
Seekin' shelter from the storm
Caught up in the fable
I 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
Tryin' to keep warm

Still the rain kept pouring
Fallin' on my ears
And I wonder
Still I wonder
Who'll stop the rain?
