Normblog's poll: the state of names and the songs of the states

Norm has had a lovely idea for a post/poll but in my current exhausted condition I can't really do justice to it. So instead here is a quote from it:
So what I'm asking you for is your favourite names of the states of the US. That is different from your favourite states. You have five votes each, to distribute to the names of five US states. No need to rank them. And with your entry I'm asking that you submit one song lyric that includes the name of one your chosen states.
With Sufjan Stevens in mind, this has to be a good thing to come back to when I'm more coherent coherant able to write...

There's a song that starts "What did Delaware boys, what did Delaware? she wore a brand New Jersey, that's what she did wear..."

And it goes on for fifty states. Great idea, crap song

My God, it goes on for all fifty? I only ever heard it up to a dozen or so (let's see, Delaware, New Jersey, California, Hawaii, Mississippi, Minnesota, Tennessee, Alaska... can't remember any more).
