Played by Bob Weir with the Dead, with Ratdog and with The Other Ones.

(1) On "The Other Ones" Weir sings "Bring it in closer"

(2) In Hunter's "Box Of Rain" the chorus is introduced before the first verse, and with slightly different lyrics:

Corrina, wake it up baby Corrina, shake it on down Corrina, Corrina

(3) In "Box Of Rain", the line is "If, what, where and when"

(4) In "Box Of Rain", the line is "Bring it back someday"

(5) Hunter adds a footnote in "Box Of Rain":

Lyrics

Hog of a Sunday
Dog of a Monday
Get it back someday
What'd I say?
Moving in closer (note 1)
Cut from a long shot
Fade on a downbeat
Ready or not, ready or not

(note 2)
Corrina, shake it up baby
Corrina, shake it up now
Corrina, Corrina

Cruise through a stop sign
Logging up short time
Bird on a phone line
Soaking up the sun
Salt on the crow tail
What can I do?
I'm down by law
But I'm true to you, true to you

If, what, when and where and how (note3)
Told at the proper time
Big black wings beat on the wind
But they don't hardly climb
There's a silver ocean
Silver clouds on a silver sea
A bird on the horizon
Silver winging back to me

Wake it up baby
Shake it down easy
Bring it in closer (note 4)
What'd I say
Moving in closer
Cut from a long shot
Fade on a down beat
Ready or not

Corrina, wake it up baby
Corrina, shake it down easy
Corrina, shake it on up now
Corrina, shake it back down

If, what, where and how
Don't mean a thing to me
I would love you even if
You flew away from me
I'll just stand here waiting
On the far side of the sea
There is no fear that lovers born (note 5)
Can ever fail to meet
