When it comes to anthems about the Garden State, it’s hard to think of one that’s sweeter and more heartfelt than Mike Sinatra’s folk-country song, “Jersey Bound.”
The song’s narrator is a self-described drifter, and loves music from other parts of the country, but still yearns for his home state.
“There’s only one place I call home/Tonight I’m Jersey bound,” he sings.

According to his bio, Sinatra has been performing for more than 20 years and has released nine CDs. For information, visit his Facebook page, facebook.com/MikeSinatraTheSongman.
