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

Old whiskey comes from old Kentucky
Ain't the country lucky
New Jersey gives us glue
And you, you come from Rhode Island
And little old 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
Little old Rhode Island is famous for you

Pencils come from Pennsylvania
Vest from Vest Virginia
And Tents from Tennessee
They know mink where they grow mink in Wyo mink
A camp chair in New Hampshire, that's for me

And minnows come Minnesota
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
