Song History
This simple yet profound number featuring a violin-led climax has been around since the beginning. Dave has always used improvised variations on the "Could I have been..." intro, along with a spoken word intro. It was recorded for "Under The Table and Dreaming" and was in the top five most played songs consecutively from the summer of 1994 all the way through to 1996. Since then, it has steadly dropped off in number of appearances each tour, only to appear twice in 1999, and once in 2001. Demand by the crowd for the re-establishment of the tune was met during the Summer 2002 tour as it again became a staple of the set.

Studio personnel:
Tim Reynolds - acoustic guitar
John Alagia - vocals
Michael McDonald - vocals
Andrew Page - vocals
Jeff Thomas - vocals
