North Side Gal
JD McPherson Lyrics


I pulled a match game all around the north side
Chasing the sweet thing so satisfied
Every time I try
Crazy about a north side gal

I got some good talk
But not enough game
Wooing the sweet thing
Oh ain't it a shame

Every time I try
Crazy about a north side gal
Well she gets colder
Every time I try to hold her
There's a little saying "no" to
All the younger gentlemen

All of 'em try
They're crazy 'bout a north side gal

I got some money
And some wheels to drive
Old beat up guitars
And old ZZ Top

Every song I sing
It screams about a north side gal

Well she gets colder
Every time I try to hold her
There's a little saying "no" to
All the younger gentlemen
All of 'em try
They're crazy 'bout a north side gal

Well I said they're crazy 'bout a north side gal
Crazy 'bout a north side gal

Regarding the debate on whether Mr. McPherson "stole" this sound, I can say that I once met and talked with him (he was my computer lab teacher in 8th grade) about some old records I found. He seemed to be disgusted by one Pat Boone record, explaining to me that he just performed all the "black" songs and sold them to a white audience. So, this guy is aware of the issue. The thing is, he's not covering black music. He wrote his own song, plain and simple, in the style of black 1950's rock 'n roll. It was an original creative act, inspired by a historical stye. If you can't understand the difference between theft and inspiration, you are missing the whole point of this man's music.

I will flat out say he is not stealing anything. Its not just jump blues he channeling but so many other things. That said any throw back scene would essentially be steeling. JD does his own thing. While many rockabilly cats and kittens may dig this sound, definitely not part of the rockabilly scene. Not like Big Sandy or the Stray Cats are.

That said if you like the music...like the music. Oh by the way...some of those songs that we might consider black music or African American music...sometimes they didn't start there. Watch Billy Braggs lecture on his book, at the end he mentions this. Overall there is so much cross pollination going on...as long as the music is good...who cares.😎👍✨

He simply revived the sound, there is no stealing of any one sound here
