Find Robert Hunter Songs

Find songs with lyrics by Robert Hunter

This section brings together all the songs with lyrics by Robert Hunter or played by Hunter. It includes all songs written for the Grateful Dead, the Jerry Garcia Band, various Mickey Hart bands, Phil Lesh & Friends etc, and most of the songs written for or recorded by other artists. It also includes Robert Hunter's solo repertoire and other lyrics from Box Of Rain. It includes songs by other artists covered by Hunter in solo performances or sung by Hunter with other bands such as Dinosaurs or Comfort (but not those sung by other vocalists in those bands). Note that I've listed songs played with Larry Klein on bass as solo performances, rather than listing them separately.

At my last count, it's got almost 550 original Hunter songs in total.

Additional information

I've added a list of Robert Hunter albums (solo albums, plus non-Dead albums by others where he contributed most of the lyrics).

I've also added a list of titles of some additional Robert Hunter lyrics registered at the Library of Congress or with ASCAP, but which don't seem to have been published, performed or recorded.

In 2020, I decided that, in memory of Robert Hunter, I would post a daily couplet from one of his lyrics on Facebook. Twitter and The Well. A complete list of what I posted is here.
