Yeah, but what about specifics. What does it mean?

I dont know if this will anwser your question but I found a litle interview of John at least talking about the song. Q: Does "Who'll Stop The Rain" contain lyrically specific meanings besides the symbolic dimension?

John Fogerty: "Certainly, I was talking about Washington when I wrote the song, but I remember bringing the master tape home and playing it. My son Josh was four years old at the time, and after he heard it, he said, 'Daddy stop stop the rain.' And my wife and I looked at each other and said, 'Well, not quite.' (From Rolling Stone) I dont know if this will anwser your question or not but I just thought I would share this since you guys were talking about "Who'll Stop The Rain" I hope you have a nice day and ROCK ON!!!
