Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"(There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays"
The Lyrics:
I met a man who lived in Tennessee,
And he was headed for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie.
From Pennsylvania folks are travelin' down
To Dixie's sunny shore.
From Arlantic to Pacific,
Gee, the traffic is terrific.
Why:
Refers to the U.S. States of Tennessee and Pennsylvania. Then refers to Dixie, a name for the southeastern U.S. Then refers to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, or in the context of the lyrics, arguably more specifically to the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of the U.S.
