The project's goal was to store a number of ten-kiloton nuclear mines in Germany, to be placed on the North German Plain and, in the event of Soviet invasion from the east, detonated by wire or an eight-day timer in order to "... not only destroy facilities and installations over a large area, but ... deny occupation of the area to an enemy for an appreciable time due to contamination ..

The Blueridge Mountains literally run the full length of the state, from North to South and everywhere in between, and it does this along the western border of the state just east of West Virginia.

Now Virginians may refer to their regions with some geographic liberty by which only the panhandle constitutes west Virginia, while the much taller western border that is located north of the panhandle is all just lumped in as north Virginia, but John Denver being a Coloradoan would not be privy to the local clichés.

With all that being said, it is clear that the Blueridge Mountains cross the east end of the panhandle. If that isn't western Virginia, then nothing is.
On the maps you posted, there's a lot of Virginia west of the Blue Ridge.  Even moreso when you consider the Shenandoah River.
Neither of us seems to know what Virginians say about all of this, or what they call the west-of-the-Blue Ridge part of the state, or what part of the state they consider the Shenandoah River to be located in.
I think I know the answer to the last one, though.  It's in the Shenandoah Valley.
"Shenandoah" is probably my favorite Native-American-language place-names.
"Susquehanna" is another great one.

Hell, I had no clue what bluebonnets are. I only knew it was an ice cream brand.

I guess I'll have to study up on my Texas-ness if I'm gonna move to Austin.


That's probably not Fort Hood, but there is similar terrain there, and that's how the bluebonnets looked from the cockpit of an AH-64.  As I remember it, we were in a smaller field, though.  A former small-arms range, I suspect, as there were berms on three sides and a road on the fourth.
That could be a berm covered in bluebonnets running from an inch below the upper-left corner across the image to an inch-and-a-half below the upper-right corner.

Never heard of Bluebonnet.  Looks like they're an ice cream distributor, and they have (at least at some point) distributed Blue Bunny ice cream (which I'd also never heard of).

Snoqualmie?  That doesn't exactly roll off the tongue the way Shenandoah does.
I think we've got better ones than that in Oklahoma: Washita, Oologah, Owasso, Tahlequah, Talihina, Talala, Sapulpa, Eufaula.  And, of course, Oklahoma itself, from Choctaw words meaning "red man."
Kansas has Pottawatomie and Osawatomie.
Tulsa (OK), Tallassee (AL) and Talahassee (FL) all come from the same Creek word "talasi," meaning "old town."

Clearly everything west of the easternmost point of West Virginia is western Virginia. 

Otherwise West Virginia would be called North Virginia.

This song was written over a century ago when the whole state was West Virginia.  Then, in the Civil War, Virginia, the eastern portion, seceded from West Virginia.
