                Idaho by Yonder Mountain String Band
Key G Major

This is the most requested song they do. Beautiful number about a western 
state "filled with fish" as dave likes to say. Quite simple and here it is:

Intro riff:
a|---0-2|
E|-3----| into C  D to >

g|--------------------0-|
d|--------------0h2p0---| (bluegrass lick is often used in the key of G)
a|--------0h1h2---------|
E|-0--2-3---------------| into G

G      C
F   C x3
D

Verse:1
G
C
F                C
Heading down the Salmon river
F    C
To a rangeland palace
F    C          D
Sage brush all around

Verse 2:
G
Where the deer and elk do roam
C
This place I may call home
F                   C
Where the flatlands stretch for miles
F                 C
And the mountains touch the sky
F       C          D
And the sun always shines

Chorus:
      Em   C      D
In Idaho,  ohh ho ohh  x3
      Em
In Idaho

(jam factory)

Verse 3:
My mind is filled with images
Of saw-tooth bridges
Where the snow melt forms
Cold mountain creeks
Flowin' through the valley down below

Verse 4:
I was standing 'neath the pine trees
On a bed of wild grass
This place has captured me, well far I can see
There ain't no place I'd rather be.

[Chorus]

Finish with the Intro Riff and you're done
