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 From Stanley up to Sunbeam C from Clayton on to Chalice 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
