I'm still sick, but at least I'm not writhing in pain (at the moment), so I thought I'd beat a dead horse here ever so briefly. Last week, I asked you to name three states other than Ohio mentioned in song over the years. Didn't get many responses, which was sad. As such, I have taken it upon myself to compile a list of states that I can recall being mentioned in song, even with my nutrition-deprived gray matter, all you have to do is come up with any of the songs for each state.
Bonus, one song mentions eight of them, that'll get you almost halfway there if you know it.
- New York
- West Virginia
(Disclaimer - no dead horses were actually harmed in the writing of this post. Which leads me to a thought that pops into my head from time to time. In college, I once wrote "Walt Whitman beats his horse to death just so he can beat a dead horse." in reference to 'Leaves of Grass'. Safe to say I'm not the man's biggest fan.)
