Morning Music – John Gorka – I’m From New Jersey

The other day I wrote that Joni’s Mitchell’s music was influenced by the beauty and grandeur of her native Canada, and then we heard Jack Williams sing about his southern home cooking – now it’s time to hear about my home state from New Jersey native John Gorka! And like John, when I lived in Florida and Georgia, I would always say NO – we don’t all talk like that, it’s JeRsey, there’s an R in the name!!Jersey is a divided state the people from the northern part of the state identify with New York and love those Yankees and Mets, while we folks from the southern part of the state identify with the correct city Philadelphia, and love those Eagles and the Phillies!!

Here’s John’s song!
