Top 25 Lyrics & Album Cover - Who'll Stop The Rain, Cosmo's Factory, CCR

Jb's first. Purchased early '70s with money I made cutting the neighbor's lawn, thought it had to be good because the band members looked so cool. Thanks for the reminder RV. And for the great writing...

Long as I remember The rain been coming down.
Clouds of myst'ry pouring Confusion on the ground.
Good men through the ages, Trying to find the sun;
And I wonder, Still I wonder, Who'll stop the rain.

I went down Virginia, Seeking 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, Trying to keep warm.
Still the rain kept pouring, Falling on my ears.
And I wonder, Still I wonder Who'll stop the rain.

Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty

Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city."

Top 25 Lyrics - Mr. Boz Scaggs & Lido Shuffle

No denying 'cause I ain't lying... And another kickin' bass line for Evan.

"Lido missed the boat that day he left the shack
But that was all he missed, and he ain't comin' back
At a tombstone bar in a jukejoint car he made a stop
Just long enough to grab a handle off the top
Next stop Chi-town, Lido put the money down, let it roll
He said, one more job oughta get it
One last shot 'fore we quit it, one for the road."
