Who CAN stop the rain?

Okay, now Byf has me thinking, because Dick Allen quoted "Who can stop the rain" in the poem "Veteran's Day," which I (and my whole class) thought was CCR, but it's not. So what is he quoting? (Italics are his) It certainly can't be DMX...

Any ideas?

Was he quoting this?

Asia or The Thompson Twins. Either way, weird...

CCR is "Have you ever seen the rain," yes?

Duh, saw the answer to my ignorant CCR query in the comments down below... :-)

I saw that Thompson Twins connection too and wondered what the heck they have to do with Vietnam...

I find pointless music trivia so fascinating I had to create an account just to respond. Doesn't CCR have another song with a different rain-related query? "And I wonder, still I wonder, who'll stop the rain?" Hey, remember "Hold back the rain" by Duran Duran?
