Blossom Dearie - Rhode Island Is Famous For You Lyrics



Copper comes from Arizona
Peaches come from Georgia
And lobsters come from Maine

The wheat fields are the sweet fields of Nebraska
And Kansas gets bonanzas from the grain
Ol' whiskey comes from ol' Kentucky
Ain't the country lucky?
New Jersey gives us glue

And you, you come from Rhode Island
And lil' ol' Rhode Island is famous for you

Cotton comes from Louisiana
Gophers from Montana
And spuds from Idaho

They plow land in the cow land of Missouri
Where most beef meant for roast beef seems to grow

Grand canyons come from Colorado
Gold comes from Nevada
Divorces also do

And you, you come from Rhode Island
And lil' ol' Rhode Island is famous for you

Pencils come from Pennsylvania
Vests from Vest Virginia
Tents from Tentassee

They know mink where they grow mink in Wyomink
A camp chair in New Hampchair - That's for me

And minnows come from Minnowsota
Coats come from Dakota
But why should you be blue?

For you - you come from Rhode Island
Don't let them ride Rhode Island
It's famous for you
