Best of Here Comes Sunshine


The Best Versions Project differs from the lists in the Grateful Dead Taper's Compendium in what Ribot_for_President calls good taste and common sense. This project isn't necessarily definitive, and its not an invitation to debate. Its a list of solid versions that you all ought to hear. For more information about the processes used to create these lists, please check the, About the Projects section on the home page.

Here Comes Sunshine
Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Jerry Garcia

Wake of the flood, laughing water, forty nine
Get out the pans, don't just stand there dreaming, get out the way
Get out the way

Here comes sunshine
Here comes sunshine

Line up a long shot, maybe try it two times, maybe more
Good to know you got shoes to wear, when you find the floor
Why hold out for more


Asking you nice now, keep the mother rolling, one more time
Been down before, you just don't have to go no more
No more
