I have this cd in my car! love john denver
Perhaps my favourite Denver song
Not an individual state, but USA as a whole
My dad loved JD when I was a kid.
GTA San Andreas put these songs in my head
That’s four states in two songs. Extra points!
I hear they had a hard time coming up with a title for this song. They wrote the whole song and left the title for last. Their first choice was “Michigan Girls” but then vetoed it. Next they tried “Rhode Island Girls”, South Dakota Girls" and “Nevada Girls”. but they just didn’t have a ring to it. As a last resort they tentatively came up with “California Girls” and it seemed to flow so it stuck but they always say in interviews that they’ve always hated that name.
