She told me to take my state of ware with me

from Yelawolf – Alabama Gotdamn Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

There are two possible meanings for this:

  1. Yela’s mom probably told him to take his “awareness” or “state of awareness” with him, as in his mental state, helping him survive in a tough world (which might also be why she threw him in the swamp)

  2. This is also the most likely location of the state name “Delaware”. The “state of ware” or state DE LA WARE (of the ware). “de la” means “of the” in Spanish. State three?
