George Harrison: Here Comes The Sun



This is a video clip at the Concert For Bangladesh, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City on August 1, 1971.

The benefit concert was to raise funds and awareness for the people of Bangladesh (formerly east Pakistan) after a tropical cyclone and civil war had displaced and killed  hundreds of thousands of people and left many more as refugees. The concert raised almost $250,000 (US) for Bangladesh relief, which was administered by UNICEF.

Here Comes The Sun
by George Harrison/The Beatles

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 sunHere 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
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 darling
I see the ice is slowly melting
Little darling
It seems like years since it's been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and i say,
It's all right
It's all right
