    The 50 State Capitals Song

    Tune: Turkey in the Straw

    Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana;

    And Columbus is the capital of Ohio

    There's Montgomery, Alabama south of Helena, Montana

    Then there's Denver, Colorado under Boise, Idaho.

    Texas has Austin, then we go north to

    Massachusetts, Boston; and Albany, New York

    Tallahassee, Florida; and Washington, D.C.

    Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Nashville, Tennessee

    (Elvis used to hang out there a lot, ya know)

    Trenton's in New Jersey north of Jefferson, Missouri

    You got Richmond in Virginia, South Dakota has Pierre

    Harrisburg's in Pennsylvania and Augusta's up in Maine

    And here is Providence, Rhode Island next to Dover, Delaware.

    Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunt to

    Montpelier which is up in Vermont

    Hartford's in Connecticut, so pretty in the fall

    And Kansas has Topeka, Minnesota has St. Paul

    Juneau's in Alaska and there's Lincoln in Nebraska

    And it's Raleigh out in North Carolina

    And then there's Madison, Wisconsin and Olympia in Washington

    Phoenix, Arizona and Lansing, Michigan

    Here's Honolulu, Hawaii's a joy

    Jackson, Mississippi and Springfield, Illinois

    South Carolina with Columbia down the way

    And Annapolis in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay

    (They have wonderful clam chowder.)

    Cheyenne is in Wyoming and perhaps you make your home in

    Salt Lake City out in Utah where the buffalo roam

    Atlanta's down in Georgia and there's Bismarck, North Dakota

    And you can live in Frankfort in your old Kentucky home.

    Salem in Oregon, from there we join

    Little Rock in Arkansas, Iowa's got Des Moines

    Sacramento, California; Oklahoma and its city

    Charleston, West Virginia and Nevada, Carson City.

    That's all the capitals there are!

    or you can watch this cute video with a state and capital song.

    it will be easier to memorize them if you watch this as it you will hear the lyrics and will be able to sing along better

    I'm a third grade teacher and had this problem last year. I remembered the Animaniacs cartoon from when I was little - the character Wacko sings a song about the 50 states and capitals. My students and I memorized the song within 2 weeks, and I haven't forgotten it yet! Here's the link:

    there is not any capital state, in simple terms a capital city. Washington D.C. is the capital city of u.s., it is placed interior the district of Columbia. District which potential that's the place the Congress Runs, it has no Governor, nor any balloting representative interior the U.S. Congress, making it although the capital/significant state of u.s.

    If you have to memorize the locations and everything, use the map of the U.S. I'm a visual learner so a map really works for me! :)
