In Pennsylvania, I learned “Waltzing Matilda” and a state song of Alaska “Alaska’s Flag”. (In 1959, Alaska had just become the 49th state.) Interestingly, IIRC, we never sang the state song of Pennsylvania.
I looked up a list of state songs on Wikipedia before writing this post (too many past hits for minor mistakes) and was surprised that state songs cover such a wide range, from none to nine. New Mexico has four, English, Spanish, bilingual, and cowboy. New Mexico is the only state with a state question, “Red or green?” Possible answers are red, green, or Christmas.
In other countries, are there as many differences between provences or other subdivisions as there are between US states?
Going further might get me into US politics so I’ll stop here.
Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

If I lived in Australia I'd try Kangaroo meat. I already know the words to
Gwynne; You can buy kangaroo meat in supermarkets. It's a very lean
meat, quite nice when cooked well. Emu is rarer, but it's around - a very
strong, gamey flavour. Not many countries eat their coat of arms.
Next time the borders open, drop by and we'll put some Skippy on the
barbie and sing 'Waltzing Matilda' together.
