Who’ll Stop The Pain

Who’ll Stop The Pain
Original words and music, “Who’ll Stop The Rain” by John Fogerty
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider

Long before November
The pain been comin down.
Worst in history showin’
Recession all around.
Bad men through the markets
Tryin’ to chase a buck
And I wonder, still I wonder,
Who’ll stop the pain?

I went down Virginia
Seein’ shelters all foreclosed
Caught up in the spiral,
I watched the homeless grow
Bailout plans and New Deals,
Causin’ budget strains.
And I wonder, still I wonder,
Who’ll stop the pain?

Heard the bankers singin’
How they needed more.
The crowd had said that they were
Tryin’ to stay poor.
Still the pain was roarin’
Calling on my fears.
And I wonder, still I wonder,
Who’ll stop the pain?
