Best best ballads that refer to a US State

Recently, there was a long discussion focused on the business merits of one US state.  It got me thinking about getting back to music and the ballads that refer to so many great places in the US.  So do you have a list (top 3-5) of favorite ballads that refer to a US state?

My list:
1) California Dreaming,  Mamas & Papas
2) Take Me Home Country Road (Almost heaven, West Virginia), John Denver
3) Sweet Home Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd
4) Please come to Boston (man from Tennessee), Dave Loggins
5) Colder Weather (Colorado), Zak Brown Band
I don’t know if these should be considered “ballads,” and they’re older than those already mentioned:

”California, Here I Come” (which is actually about the state)
”Deep in the Heart of Texas” (ditto)
”Yellow Rose of Texas”

And to really stretch:

”Nothing Could be Finer (than to be in Carolina)” — Al Jolson

I don’t know about any of you, but just to read their titles sets the songs playing in my head. ;-)
@jimcrane  me too; keep playing these tunes in my head.

Two more:
Rocky Mountain High (Colorado), John Denver
Take It Easy (Winslow, Arizona), Eagles plus Jackson Brown version
