"Here Comes Sunshine" as written by Jerome J. Garcia and Robert C. Hunter....
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

Here comes sunshine
Here comes sunshine

Asking you nice, now, keep the mother rollin'
One more time, been down before
You just don't have to go no more, no more

Here comes sunshine
Here comes sunshine

    Memoryi was at a festival and it was a really sunny day and out of the middle of nowhere there was a torrential downpour. everyone ran for the tents and tried to get away from the stage because it was a lightning storm. the feild flooded, in some places atleast up to your knees, and it went on for atleast an hour. then, as suddenly as it started, it stopped and the sun came out. it was really, really freaky but really cool. Anyways, i guess the soundboard guy put this song on and it came out blasting all around the feild and everyone just came out of wherever they were and started walking around the field, playing in the puddles, and dancing. it was just so surreal like you were in a dream. probably one of my favorite memories.

    Song MeaningRobert Hunter's note from a A Box of Rain (lyric book):

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

    General Commentstarts off with a reference to the great gold- rush of 1849 - "get out your pans"....when this was written, there was a big old- west fad goin' on....I recall bands like the charlatans, the James gang, the new riders, then later, stuff like the eagle's album desperado.....Hunter loved the whole old- west vibe, and here he combines that ilk with the then- hippie- ethic of being a lazy stoner: " don't stand there dreamin'' and "when you find the floor"....it was (and still is ) a great joke to prank on your your stoner buds, and Hunter loved that prank too.
