Two suggestions:

World Inferno Friendship Society - My Ancestral Homeland, New Jersey: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGuR9NC8YtM

Lawrence Arms - Nebraska: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfHcaAu-aNQ

I'll try to dig for these tracks at home. (As a Jersey denizen I really dig the World Inferno track.)

Delaware has GOT to be "Delaware Rain" by The Paint Set, a wonderful indie pop track from the 80s by Ric Menck later of Velvet Crush. Unfortunately, I'm on vacation at the moment, so I don't have it handy, but if you can't find it I'll upload it when I get back.

There's "North To Alaska" by Johnny Horton and "Charlotte's in North Carolina" by Keith Whitley. "Jersey Girl" by Tom Waits almost fits. "Arizona" by Mark Lindsay isn't really about the state but it's a good pop tune.
