10 pages | PDF | 2.6 MBBox of Rain by Grateful Dead is a classic rock track composed by Phil Lesh and written by Robert Hunter. The track is composed in the key of G major and E minor, with 119 measures. The song starts off with a melodic guitar riff, followed by a mid tempo rhythm section featuring drums and bass, and punctuated by a jangling 12-string guitar. Lyrically, the song reflects on the importance of relationships, as it tells a story about how a person's spirit will stay alive in the hearts of those around them, even if they are gone. The track then builds to its uplifting chorus, featuring heartfelt singing from Jerry Garcia and the rest of the band, before the song fades out with the same guitar riff from the beginning.
