Pinetop Slim was correct when he said:
"Lots of songs about northern locales have been mentioned, but Wesley S's brother's observation hasn't had to weather much of a challenge. The North, as a region, hasn't inspired anybody to write an anthem about it. "I wish I was in Masie. Hooray! Hooray."
Just because a song mentions a locale in the north doesn't mean it applies to this situation. In bluegrass alone it's tough to find a CD that doesn't have a song with the theme of traveling far from home and then deciding that you can't wait to get back to that little cabin in Tennessee/Kentucky/Carolina where the old folks live. Not to mention dreaming of getting back to see that pretty little gal I left behind. The genre is full of songs like that. Where are all of the songs about returning to the old folks in New Hampshire or Rhode Island or even Iowa?
By the way - I'm sure Iowa and Rhode Island are full of pretty little gals.
