Been to Canaan Lyrics

My understanding is that she had a house in Canaan, CT back in the early 1970’s when she wrote this song.

Canaan is the promised land as promised by God to Abraham. It was a large and prosperous ancient country (at times independent, at others a tributary to Egypt) located in present-day Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Israel and was also known as Phoenicia.
Carole King is Jewish and was speaking of the Jewish promised land and paradise.

This one's easy. She's singing about her home in Canaan, Connecticut.
