Creedence Clearwater Revival: Have You Ever Seen the Rain? Meaning
Have You Ever Seen the Rain? Lyrics
There's a calm before the storm
I know, it's been comin' for some time.
When it's over, so they say,
It will rain a sunny day,
I know, shining down like water
I wanna know: have you ever seen the rain?

Rain on a sunny day generally means the end of a storm. I think this represents an end to something bad; the optimistic person who realizes that all bad things do eventually come to an end.

It was about his brother leaving the group.
Howwever, for many Vietnam vets, it describes what they saw over there, and asks if you have seen what they have seen.

I think it's about a man who's always happy, but then starts suffering from depression! He then asks the person who put him through depression if he or she's ever seen the rain, meaning has he or she ever suffered from depression.
