I Wanna See The States
I wanna see the states (x2)
From the foggy Golden Gate to the great Michigan lakes
I wanna see the states

Oh, how did you get to this town?
Was it where you were born or did you move around?
California's got places down south
We can lay in the sun on the beach
Drive up the Oregon coast
It's rocky and lighthouses dot it for most of the way
Through to Washington—Cascadian snow
On the tips of Olympian peaks
North to Alaska and we had no fear
We were on to the future, the final frontier
While in Hawaii they're probably righteously surfing the worlds greatest breaks
But oh, Idaho
Has got the most respectable
Folks we know
We'll follow the Rockies and never stop roaming
Through Colorado, Montana, Wyoming
Down in New Mexico, we're eating green chilies
Hit the slopes up in Park City, Utah

Well I wanna see the states
I wanna see the states
From Nevada's Vegas strange to the wicked pines of Maine
I wanna see the states

Deep down in Texas there's bright starry skies
Oklahomians all realize
The sun never sets, we're just spinning around
Spun up to Kansas and clung to the ground
Slipped off the great plain to Southern Missouri
A creek and a sunset and no need to hurry
Just lazily drifting the great Mississippi
Through Tennessee, Arkansas, and Kentucky
Down to the bayous of Louisiana
Glowing fireflies down in Alabama
Lit up your face like you were next to the moon
South Carolina, we'll be getting there soon
But Ohio
Has got the most festivals
And swing votes
We'll span Indiana right over the crossroads
In Illinois we had deep dish and hot dogs
Cornhuskers score a Nebraskan point and I
Hear some music in downtown Des Moines, Iowa

Well I wanna see the states
I wanna see the states
From Florida's southern cays to the Delaware tax rates
I wanna see the states
I wanna dip my feet into the sand
I wanna dive into the Rio Grande
From the tall Virginian trees to a sultry Georgian breeze
I wanna see the land
Fall in New Hampshire we stopped by the woods
With paid parking meters by rogue Robin Hoods
Freedom and unity o'er in Vermont
There's hope in Rhode Island to live how you want
So live how you like but I love Ma**achusetts
New York's got places where we can get loose
It's like everything you ever wanted at once
We'll go upstate and we can stay there for months
We'll cut through the forests of Hartford, Connecticut
Can't help but love famous New Jersey etiquette
Or in D.C. on the Capitol Hill
Historic decisions are being made still
The West Virginian mountains are wild and wonderful
North Carolina where autumn is colorful
Crabbing in Maryland, hoagies in Harrisburg
Pennsylvania declared us America

But it's far
It's far (x2)
Oh it's far
Between them
But take it from me it's worth all the long car rides to see them
Just wait till you see
Yosemite or New England
They make you believe in life, liberty, and freedom
Well I wanna see the states
I wanna see the states
From the lakes of Minnesota to the North and South Dakota
I wanna see the states

I wanna dip my feet into the sand
I wanna dive into the Rio Grande
From the Arizona desert to Wisconsin's snowy weather
I wanna see the land (x2)
