Idaho - Poem by Joe Howell

Found that ole tune
on the radio today
though of you, it's been
so long-so long

im glad that your just a bad
itch that i don't have to scrach
yesterdays news, with a bad hairdo
you played the wrong hand, you lost

now im doing alright, sleep good
all night, wake fresh and free
while you, are just a bad dream
whose mama called everyday

Heard that ole song on the radio
picked me up and put me in Idaho
picked me up and put me in Idaho
