"High Days" as written by and Bert Jansch....
I’m sorry if I failed you, for that I take the blame
And I’m sorry if I snubbed you, I hang my head in shame
But those people you call friends did you much more harm than good
I should’ve tried much harder to reach out when i could

When the children come to visit you, you break into a smile
They fill your heart with sunshine, just for a little while
You made a model airplane to teach them how to fly
But when it crashed on the runway, you didn’t ask the pilot why

I got the lady from Baltimore stuck on my mind
Bringing back those high days, when we would hang around
You play your guitar, but you never ever finish the song
Didn’t matter than, I guess it doesn’t matter now

I got the lady from Baltimore stuck on my mind
Bringing back those high days, when we would hang around
You play your guitar, but you never ever finish the song
Didn’t matter than, and I guess it doesn’t matter now

And I guess it doesn’t matter now

I guess it doesn’t matter now

    Song MeaningHigh Days was Bert's tribute to Cliff Aungier.
    This is obvious from the reference to the "lady from Baltimore" which was the name of an LP Cliff brought out which contains a cover of this Tim Hardin song.
    I first heard Cliff about 1968 and was impressed with his version of green sleeves "bluesleeves". I don't think Cliff Aungier got the recognition he deserved
