Song Lyric Sunday: Let Go – ‘Don’t Let Go’

This week, Helen’s theme for Song Lyric Sunday is ‘Let Go’. So, just to be awkward, here’s a song entitled ‘Don’t Let Go’. It’s the first song that came to my mind when I saw the prompt, which is entirely due to the fact that it was a long-time staple of the Jerry Garcia Band.…
