"Back Where I Started" as written by and Warren Haynes Derek Trucks....
Dancing backwards wound up in another place and time.
No way of knowing where I was headed to.
Maybe I was running away like always
Sure wasn't ready for something new.

How did I wander back where I started?
I?m so glad I found you there.

Time was wasting away, like water through my hands
And blood was dripping from my stone.
Caught up in the motion, motion that is every man
Spinning out of control

How did I get back to where I started?
I?m so glad I found you there, yes I?m so glad
I found you there.

Seems like I?ve know you for a thousand years.
Seems like I?ve watched you grow from a child.
It?s hard to remember the first time I saw your face
With the moonlight in your smile.

How did I wander back where I started?
I?m so glad I found you there
I?m so glad I found you there
Oh, I?m so glad I found you there
And I?m so glad I found you there

    General CommentSaw tedeschi trucks band play this recently. Susan introduced the song by saying Derek wrote it as an instrumental and it stayed that way for a long time until one day Warren Haynes was at their house, these words came to him in a dream
