But I'm stuck in Folsom Prison
And time keeps draggin' on

Johnny Cash's, "Orange Blossom Special"
The Lyrics:
Well, I'm going down to Florida
And get some sand in my shoes.
Or maybe California
And get some sand in my shoes.
I'll ride that Orange Blossom Special
And lose these New York blues.
Refers to the U.S. states of Florida and California, and also to New York, most likely to the city rather than the state generally. Since the Orange Blossom Special sounds like the name of a train, curiously the lyrics would seem to imply that that train went from New York to both Florida and California. That seems unlikely, as Florida would be a major detour en route from New York to California. But, who knows?
