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

Chorus
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

[chorus]

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

[chorus]
