"California has worn me quite thin, I just can't wait to see you again"-Come Monday by Jimmy Buffett.

California is probably one of the easiest states for this thread.

Nah, Tennessee is probably the easiest. At one time the Memphis CVB said that the name "Memphis" appeared in more songs than any other city. I don't know.

Anyway, I guess next up is Colorado. That's an easy one, too, thanks to John Denver's "Rocky Mountain High."

"Tell Me Something Bad About Tulsa" George Strait
"Big 'Ol Truck" Toby Keith
"Tulsa Time" Don Williams
"You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" David Frizzell and Shelly West
"Oklahoma Swing" Vince Gill and Reba McEntire
"Boys from Oklahoma" Cross Canadian Ragweed"
"Oklahoma Breakdown" Stoney LaRue (a must listen if you've never heard)

Sorry JTUR88....I jumped the gun a little bit on your game. Well, when we finally get to "O" there will be plenty of songs to choose from for Oklahoma.

North Dakota might be difficult, but there are a few states to go before that becomes an issue. Before that, someone next has to find one for Connecticut. That could be a challenge.
