North Side Gal
by JD McPherson

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.

"...Disgusted by one Pat Boone record..." Well put. I too was angered by the soft, smooth Boone offerings that were a cheap, lazy copy of current hits. What a fraud.

"...there’s always some precedent – most everything is a knockoff of something else... It’s tricky, you have to have the right touch and integrity or you could end up with something stupid. Michelangelo’s statue of David is not the real David. Some people never get this and they’re left outside in the dark. Try to create something original, you’re in for a surprise." - Bob Dylan
