Very possible TS. Maybe The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down. An old JGB tune and the one I tend to associate the most with Levon
If that jubilee don't come, maybe I'll meet you, on the run

Here's the official release from Levon Helm's family:

Dear Friends,
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey.

Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration… he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance! He did it every time he took the stage…

We appreciate all the love and support and concern.
From his daughter Amy, and wife Sandy
Thank You Jerry

It's hard to imagine they wouldn't acknowledge Levon again tonight. Just so sad! And I don't want to get too maudlin here, but it does make me that much more grateful for all these chances we've had to hear the guys while on the couch. I sure never would have heard this many shows in the last year without it, and you have to value every one, always!

I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

Levon's situation may explain why Furthur has seemed a little "off" on this tour. Heaven knows the Band and the Dead go way, way back together. Phil and Bobby are truly losing a brother and I, for one, want to send them a prayer for strength and healing.

"No!"
