Arrow

By far her most asked for song, and as you can see, her most recorded. The version on Legacy 2 is the same as Circles and Arrows. All the others are different.

The story about the song is almost as good as the song itself. Cheryl got up in the middle of the night and wrote most of the song in one sitting. And it was almost never recorded. Cheryl was putting together a tape of songs to be considered for her first album. Her friend Patsy kept telling her she should add this one, but Cheryl didn't think it would work. Finally, she added it to the tape just to prove to Patsy that it wasn't that good of a song. Fortunately, it made it on to the album.

The version on Circles and Arrows is a "seriously remixed" variation of the version on Cheryl Wheeler, including Mark O'Conner's beautiful violin. A live version of Arrow can be found on YouTube.
