Who'll Stop The Rain Chord Chart by Creedence Clearwater Revival

Welcome to my Who'll Stop The Rain chord chart by Creedence Clearwater Revival. I really like CCR songs because they are usually pretty easy and straight forward. This song has a couple of little complications in the fact that there is a Bm chord that pops in every once in a while as well as an syncopated instrumental portion to the song. This are easily simplified for the beginner, so let's take a look shall we?

Easy Bm:

B Minor








Strumming:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
DU DU DU DU

Easier Interlude: Just strum and hold
G D C
Em G G G
