I would guess that very few people know R.E.M. did a cover of this song. They did it for 
live performance,
although I don't know when or where. Here it is.

Two versions are presented here: first keeps the original lyrics, but played the way 
does. The second is
with the lyrics that Michael actually sang during the performance.

VERSION 1:
INTRO
G | C (x2)
G

VERSE ONE
 G
Someone told me long ago
                                     D
There's a calm before the storm, I know

And it's been coming for some time

When it's over, so they say
                            D
It'll rain a sunny day, I know
                     G
Shining down like water

CHORUS
C       D
I wanna know
          G           Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C       D
I wanna know
          G           Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C        D                 G
Coming down on a sunny day

VERSE TWO
G
Yesterday and days before
                                 D
Sun is cold and rain is hard, I know
                    G
Been that way for all my time
G
'Til forever on it goes
                                  D
Thru the circle fast and slow, I know
                       G
And it can't stop, I wonder

CHORUS AGAIN

VERSION 2:
INTRO
G | C (x2)
G

G
Someone told me long ago
                                    D
There's a calm before the storm, I know
                      G
It's been coming for some time
G
Yesterday and days before
                                 D
Hot is cold and cold is warm, I know
                  G
Shining down like water

C       D
I wanna know
          G             Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C        D             G
Coming down on a sunny day

G
Yesterday and days before
                                 D
Hot is cold and cold is warm, I know
                 G
It can't last forever
G
If forever on it goes
                              D
On a circle fast and slow, I know
                    G
Shining down like water

C       D
I wanna know
          G             Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C       D
I wanna know
          G             Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C      D               G
Coming down on a sunny day

C       D
I wanna know
          G             Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C       D
I wanna know
          G             Em
Have you ever seen the rain
C      D               G
Coming down on a sunny day

G | C (x2)
End on G
