This is the most optimistic track on the Lullaby and... The Ceaseless Roar album. Plant told Mojo magazine about the song: "I'm taking stock of my time and the seasons crash around my heart," he said, "but I can be reflective and celebratory too, because I've still got the engine and the vehicle to exercise myself. and if there is one thing that I will dance to, it is my own tune."
Plant debuted the song live on July 11, 2014 during his set at the Pistoia Blues Festival in Pistoia, Italy.
Plant told NPR the song is, "one of those amazing instances where we pieced together so many great ideas. All the combined gifts of the band, drifting through these varieties and styles, give us some amazing places to go."
The opening lyrics are taken directly from the beginning of the Led Zeppelin II track "Thank You." That was the first Zeppelin song for which Plant wrote all the lyrics.
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
