"I Must Be High" as written by and Jeffrey Scott Tweedy....
You always wanted more time,
To do what you always wanted to do
Now you got it

And I, I must be high,
To say goodbye
Bye bye bye

You never said you needed this
And you're pissed that you missed the very last kiss,
From my lips

And I, I must be high,
To say goodbye
Bye bye bye

And you never looked in my eyes,
Long enough to find any piece of mind
But now you got it

And I, I must be high,
To let you say goodbye
Bye bye bye

    General CommentLike most of the songs on AM this tune is about breaking up. I always thought the song was about regret sfter the fact, but after listening to it with the break up of Uncle Tupelo in mind, I was struck by the songs anger. The regret about Uncle Tupelo's demise is still present but the lines,

    "And you never looked in my eyes,
    Long enough to find any piece of mind
    But now you got it"

    strike me as the songs centerpiece and Tweedy's first shot at Jay Farrar.
