Could you nail any of these?

It was actually tough for me to think of some of these, so this little project has taken quite some time and  the trusty help of Google. I found some of the most pro-Buffalo songs out there. (Very slowly, but they were there). It was pretty cool to go through all genres of music finding songs that mean enough to an artist to mention the Queen City, let alone some who wrote an entire song about Buffalo.

Can you remember any of these songs that mention 'Buffalo' or reference Western New York in them? Can you add any more to the list?

    Van Morrison - Saint Dominic's Preview

    And it's a long way to Buffalo

    It's a long way to Belfast city too

    And I'm hoping the choice won't blow the hoist

    'Cause this town, they bit off more than they can chew.

    And Chippewa's where we go

    When we're up in Buffalo

    Don't you know those yankees drink enough to DROWN

    Grateful Dead - Truckin'

    Truckin', up to Buffalo. Been thinkin', you got to mellow slow

    Takes time, you pick a place to go, and just keep truckin' on

    Sittin' and starin' out of the hotel window

    Got a tip they're gonna kick the door in again

    The Church - Buffalo

    Snow came up Friday, I gotta go

    Spending winter up in Buffalo

    Someone I met there is calling me so

    Got to escape the blues man, don't you know

    John Fogerty --Rock And Roll Girls

    If I had my way, I'd shuffle off to Buffalo

    Sit by the lake and watch the world go by

    Ladies in the sun, listenin' to the radio

    Like flowers on the sand, the rainbow in my mind

    Tragically Hip--At The Hundredth Meridian

    At the hundredth meridian (trust me)

    Where the great plains begin

    I remember, I remember Buffalo

    And I remember Hengelo

    Rick James--Below The Funk

    I was born in a city we call Buffalo

    Zero degrees below is too damn cold and funky

    Mama raised me on the numbers racket

    With eight kids and no father

    Said she couldn't hack it

    Goo Goo Dolls--Broadway

    Broadway's dark tonight

    A little bit weaker than you used to be

    Broadway's dark tonight

    See the young man sittin' in the old man's bar

    Waitin' for his turn to die

    Bruce Spingsteen--Erie Canal

    We haul'd some barges in our day

    Filled with lumber, coal, and hay

    We know every inch of the way

    From Albany to Buffalo

    Low bridge, everybody down

    Low bridge, yeah we're coming to a town

    And you'll always know your neighbor

    And you'll always know your pal

    If ya ever navigated on the Erie Canal
