The 50 States That Rhyme—And It Works For Me!

Have you ever been struggling with the memorisation of the 50 states of the United States?

Not me. I just want to learn them. But for some of you, the answer may be “yes”. And therefore, here’s a rhyme that can help you memorise them—it works for me! I really love it and I want to share it with you.

Let’s get started!

The 50 States That Rhyme

Melody: Turkey in the Straw

Alabama and Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas,

California, Colorado and Connecticut and more;

Delaware, Flordia and Georgia and Hawaii, Idaho,

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, so thirty-five to go.

Kansas and Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine,

Maryland and Massachusetts, good old Michigan;

Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri and Montana,

Nebraska’s 27 number 28’s Nevada.

Next New Hampshire and New Jersey and way down New Mexico,

There’s New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio;

Oklahoma, Oregon and Pennsylvania now let’s see,

Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee.

Texas and there’s Utah, Vermont, I’m almost through,

To Virginia, and there’s Washington, and West Virginia too;

Could Wisconsin be the last state, or is it forty-nine?

No, Wyoming is the last state in the fifty states that rhyme!


Alright, that’s it! I really hope that’d help you. Feel free to comment below. If you like this post, definitely remember to share it with your friends and we’ll appreciate that a lot!
