  • Hello!
    Bob Dylan often would use contractions like that in his songs, I guess to shorten the line of the song or to make it easier to sing. If it were written correctly, it would be, "It is a hard rain that is going to fall". The word "rain" is very rarely pluralized with an apostrophe and an 'S' like it is here, even when it is being used as a verb. It was in this sentence though to replace the word "is" to simply it.

    I hope this makes sense! Best of luck with your project, it sounds like a great idea!
  • @flotschi Hi A hard rain means a destructive consequence will happen.
