Northern Girl

This is a song about being homesick. Cheryl was born and raised in Timonium Maryland, outside of Baltimore. She moved to New England in 1976. She thought she was getting used to the northern climate. One day, however, she got a bad case of homesickness and a really great song. You can watch a live performance of Northern Girl on YouTube.

This song was one of a few songs that spontaneously came to Cheryl. She describes sitting on the couch and playing the song from start to finish, pretty close to the final version. That doesn't happen to her very often, but when it does, the results are usually great. Arrow is another song that came to her that way.
