Here Comes Sunshine
Composer: Jerry Garcia / Robert Hunter

Here Comes Sunshine was first performed by the Grateful Dead in February 1973. It was played about 30 times through to February 1974 and then dropped from the repertoire. The song returned to the repertoire in December 1992, at the instigation of Vince Welnick, and was then played a few times each year until 1995.

Robert Hunter comments on this song in Box Of Rain: Lyrics 1965 - 1993;

Remembering the great Vanport, Washington flood of 1949, living in other people's homes, a family abandoned by father; second grade.
