HERE COMES THE SUN

Live 08 Dec 2001 version


[Bruce Springsteen (spoken intro):] This week Bobby Bandiera is not with us tonight, he's out working for a living somewhere. And uh, Nils is gonna take over, take care of his ???.

[Nils Lofgren:]

Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes – I wanna see you
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say it's all right
Here comes the sun, doo doo doo doo
Here comes the sun, and I say it's all right
It's all right

[Bruce Springsteen (spoken outro):] Thank you Nils. We're sending it out to Bobby tonight, yeah.
