Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm
I know
It's been comin' for some time

When it's over, so they say
It'll rain a sunny day
I know
Shinin' down like water

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day

Yesterday and days before
Sun is cold and rain is hard
I know
Been that play for all my time

Till forever upon it goes
Through the circle fast and slow
I know
It can't stop, I wonder

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day

Yeah

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day

I don't understand why RP listeners who don't like a particular song don't just skip it.
 
Their voices must be heard! Their displeasure must be noted and acknowledged! 
I skipped this one because to my ears it's the sound of pulling tics out of the backs of diseased rats with ugly squeaks.

Sounds like it's being sung by a backward tree-stump wearing eating britches, chewin on the cud of a snappy cow.

The movie also featured the lovely Tuesday Weld, who unfortunately I haven't seen in a movie since 1993's "Falling Down".

Tuesday's GONE!
 
the final scene of that movie is a reference to Neil Cassady's death. Great Movie!
On a sunny summer day in Texas - it happens all the time
By far not their best.

I can't hear a CCR song without remembering Who'll Stop the Rain starring Nick Nolte, based on Robert Stone's excellent novel Dog Soldiers
good story, good visuals and good music

I'm sure that Bill is not sitting there spinning records but I just heard it too. {#Stupid}

Hi, Bill, you need to fix (or change) this song!

 
Yes, there is a weird hiccup early in the song.  Feels out of place but if that is the original recording, please do not touch it.  
Way good.
Hi, Bill, you need to fix (or change) this song!
That last extended "YEAH" by J.F. is epic.
So good.
how do you know perfect song to play?
From the Pendulum album. Last album they did with Tom Fogerty.
Of course this is a darn good, good, good oldie! Cheers! {#Cheers}

Great song from my formative years.  Still holds up well.

 awesome driving music, their entire catalogue.. {#Motor}
Did those Berkeley Boys ever do a bad song?
 
Recent text from my daughter, a freshman at the University of Michigan:

"So this morning's East Quad breakfast playlist consisted of CCR songs … Pretty sure I was the only one who knew all the words to 90 percent of the songs. I wanted to jump on a table and belt out Have You Ever Seen the Rain? I blame you."

Blame accepted.
