Roger Daltrey: Rock legend and Arsenal fan closes out Highbury

Here is Roger Daltrey’s tribute to Highbury. Thierry Henry gets a mention.
Highbury Highs – written by Roger Daltrey
I’ve seen children grow
On this field of green
On this field of dreams
The years have passed away
I’ve stood side by side With London’s Pride
We laughed and we cried
We lived another day
To those Highbury Highs under North London skies
Yes we will remember those Highbury Highs
Those Highbury Days and those Highbury ways
Yes we will remember those Highbury Days
From Rocky,Ray and Raddy
To Dennis,Chippy,Paddy
The Rock of Tony Adams
The Joy of Charlie George
Chapman, Graham, Wenger
Yes we will remember
Henry,Bastin,Wright
And those record breaking scores
All those Highbury Highs under North London skies
Yes we will remember those Highbury Highs
Those Highbury Days and those Highbury ways
Yes we will remember those Highbury Days
May those Highbury Highs be with you all your days
May your Highbury Highs last forever
There‚Äôs one thing that’s certain when they drop the final curtain
Something you can bet your shirt on The Arsenal’s here to stay
All those Highbury Highs under North London skies
Yes we will remember those Highbury Highs
Those Highbury Days and those Highbury ways
We will always remember those Highbury..HIGHBURY..Highbury
Highbury..HIGHBURY
Highbury Highs say your final goodbyes
We will always remember those Highbury Highs
Say your final goodbyes to those Highbury Days
WE will always remember those Highbury Days
WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THOSE HIGHBURY DAYS

RPT CHORUS
I prefer My Generation, Summertime Blues, Pin Ball Wizard, Who are you, and a whole bunch of Who’s songs but somehow these goofy lyrics are quite alright in the context of Highbury closing. It must have taken Daltrey exactly 10 minutes to write this song.
