Robert Hunter

This lyric, from the Grateful Dead song “Scarlet Begonias,” is a prime example of the lyrical grace and wit Robert Hunter employed as a songwriter. Though he never played on stage, he was an irreplaceable member of the band and his partnership with lead singer Jerry Garcia spanned decades. “Scarlet Begonias” debuted in 1974 at the Cow Palace in Daly City, California, and was subsequently played 316 times in concert. It tells the story of a fleeting love affair in London, and this line can be taken as a poignant reminder to keep your eyes and heart open, because you never know what gifts life may serve up “if you look at it right.”
