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

Little darlin', it's been a long cold lonely winter.
Little darlin', 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 darlin', the smiles returning to their faces,
Little darlin', 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.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes.

Little darlin', I feel that ice is slowly melting.
Little darlin', 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.

The best part of this wonderful song are those last 2 bars or so where he walks a major chord to end it with a nice little lift. Like the effect of sunshine itself.
I named my little boy after Harrison. I really hope he's goes on to be as rich as George in all of the right things that matter!

My favorite Beatle and my favorite Beatles song.  And I do remember where I was when I heard George passed.  A sad day.

 I agree that it's a bit "precious" or pop-py. Still, it's essentially a very fine song, and one of the best songs by my favorite Beatle, either when he was one of the Fab or solo, so it flies high automatically. 

 
Yes, my all time favorite Beatle as well.  So enjoyed the documentary on him, I think it was on Netflix.  Very much worth watching.  He was a good man and tried to do his best for this world.  He lived LOVE every day.
Aww, I needed this today!!!  Thank you!!
This one does not get played nearly enough!!!!!!
studio version is much better to me.

Me too.  This felt "tiny" and a bit "trite".  My all time favorite version is from the Concert for Bangladesh.

 
You got that right. The version from the Concert for Bangaldesh is the best. There are some other great tracks from that concert where they totally hit it out of the ballpark. For example, the medley of Jumpin Jack Flash and Youngblood as performed by Leon Russell and Don Preston. That is a WOW track!

Cannot imagine John having that conversation.

I wanted to rate this song at like 250 or something, but the scale only goes to 10.  Can I give it 25 10s?
 
Yes, yes.
Tears rolling at the moment, and I have no idea why. Just the beauty of the song itself, I guess, and sad that George's life was so short. 
I miss you, George.   Your spirit, humor, and music is eternal.  See you in the next life.

While I agree with you, there are 9 people who've rated this as a 1. Those must be the people my husband and I refer to as the people that don't like sunshine, fresh air and puppies.
Gave my mom an alarm clock that woke you to this song.  Best way to wake up ever.
Yes, George was my favorite Beatles.

This is better than any shoulder massage, It,s allright. 

Have ve watched many a sunrise flying eastbound from my cockpit. The song instantly connects. 
Is it just me or is BIll playing a lot more Beatles lately?

I'm totally good with that but just wondering if he's going through a phase :) 
Sublime. Just that.

But this is indeed great stuff.  A solid 10.

marvelous live version...

Miss you Georgie....I miss all the Beatles
RIP George, thanks for your beautiful music and being a great part of the soundtrack to my youth {#Sunny}{#Notworthy}
GH... as a vital a force in the advance of Western civilization - linking us to the East -  as John and Paul in pushing us to cosmic understanding.

Everybody in my church loves this live version...
 
Thanks Bill,

Two GH tunes in a row.  Time to get the wallet out and do my bit to support your great efforts!
Any version of this with George singing is OK with me.

It will be snowing in Boston (again) around 10 pm tonight.  I'm ready for the sunshine, and thelocals tell me this won't be the last snow of the winter.
Wife's uncles bluegrass band plays an good version of this.  Translates well.

 No, is is a guitar capoed at the 7th fret.  Play the A chord as a D and you will have that sound.

Same as the riff for If I Needed Someone.

Not a dork at all, Cynaera.  George was always my favourite Beatle.  Always love your commentary!

In an aside:  I realize the American spell check does not approve of my stubbornly using British commonwealth spelling.  However, while I am not surprised that Beatles is considered a proper word, the singular is surprisingly viewed as a mispelling.

He could take something basic, something we pretty much take for granted, sunrise, and convert it into a paean of rebirth and joy. Moreso, given who he was and what he went through—I mean Beatlemania...really—that he could pull this one out of his hat in the middle of all that amazes me to this day.
 
I was just thinking along those lines, the wisdom conveyed in the simplicity...my first kid´s cot doll had this tune, my wife and I are from South America and we were living in London when he was born and the lack of sun killed us, so this was always a balm.
I have a graduation ceremony to attend tonight - outside. It's been raining, intermittently hailing, with possible lightning on the way. This song can't hurt the cosmic vibe. {#Sunny}

This version is gorgeous - this song is always an excellent listen in any setting, however to my ears the studio version can't be beat!!

Yes, I think it is coming out after the hurricane.  We are drying out and did not lose power.  
Those of us now seeing the sun, after a few days of rain and Hurricane Irene, really appreciate this song today. Thanks, Bill! 
Such a happy song on this sunny Easter day. :)
Perfect choice for this Easter Sunday. We have rain, sunshine, and more rain, but "it's all right."  I'm appreciating every little sun-break we get, and this song makes the sun even more precious to me. {#Daisy}

He looked so sad - no eye contact.... But watching him play, he dropped his left hand from the frets and then found the right chord immediately - such confidence in his abilities.

Thank you, as always, Calypsus_1.  An awesome piece of history that will provide insight to anyone who chooses to click the link and watch.

George Harrison is still the one who gave me peace when things were crazy. I love his music, with and without the Beatles. If that makes me an uneducated dork, so be it.
Great song!!!{#Sunny}
This song is so perfect, it would be hard pressed to ruin it in any form! Just sublime!{#Sunny}

Well, George seems to give this a "toss off" treatment rather than the reverential preservation it deserves.  It's his song, however, and he can do with it as he pleases.  (I mean all of this in past tense, of course.)


This song, in all of its versions, gives me shivers and makes me happy and sad at once.  I love it.  Miss you, George...{#Sunny}

I have to say, the studio version is one of my least favorite Beatles tunes - it's only a 9. LOL

I think George gives it a sparkling, beautiful sound here. 10
