Rhode Island Is Famous For You

This song is by erin mckeown and appears on the album Sing You Sinners (2006).

Copper comes from Arizona
Peaches come from Georgia
And lobsters come from Maine
Well the wheat fields are the sweet fields of Nebraska
And Kansas gets bo-nansas from the grain
And old whiskey comes from old Kentucky
Ain't the country lucky
New Jersey gives us glue
And you, you come from Rhode Island
Little old Rhode Island; it's famous for you

Cotton comes from Louisiana
Gophers from Montana
And spuds from Idaho
Well they plough land in the cowland of Missoura
Where most beef meant for roast beef
Seems to grow
And Grand canyons come from Coloradah
Gold comes from Nevada
But divorces also do
And you, you come from Rhode Island
Little old Rhode Island is famous for you

Pencils come from Pennsylvania
Vests from Vest Virginia
And tents from Tent-a-see
Well they know mink where they grow mink in Wyomink
And a camp chair in new Hamp-chair that's for me
And minnows come from Minnow-sota
Coats come from Dakota
So why should you be blue?
And you, you come from Rhode Island
Don't let 'em ride Rhode Island
It's famous for you
Famous for you
Famous for you
