Copper comes from Arizona
And lobsters come from Maine
And Kansas gets bonanzas from the grain
Old whiskey comes from old Kentucky
New Jersey gives us glue
And little old Rhode Island is famous for you
Cotton comes from Louisiana
And spuds from Idaho
Where most beef meant for roast beef seems to grow
Grand canyons come from Colorado
Divorces also do
Little old Rhode Island is famous for you
Pencils come from Pennsylvania
And Tents from Tennessee
A camp chair in New Hampshire, that's for me
And minnows come Minnesota
But why should you be blue
Don't let them ride Rhode Island
