"Idaho" as written by and John Linnell....
Night-long
Vigil by the picture window.
Sleepy
Eyes never leave the road.
Past my bedtime
Miles ago.
Still haven't entered
Idaho.

There is a sign
Just up the way.
100 feet
From my front yard.
And though it's dark
I make it out.
It says that Idaho
Welcomes you.

Everybody's passed out.
They don't know
How close we are now.
Idaho.

(car alarm blares throughout)

Seen you.
Know everything about you.
Heard your
Air blowing 'cross my door.
Tantilizing.
Go man go.
Driving my house to
Idaho.

Almost there now.

Play that drumroll.

    General CommentThis was inspired by John Linnell reading an anecdote about John Lennon taking acid at a party and spending the whole night staring out the picture window thinking he was driving the house. Then of course he just made the song take place in Idaho instead of England to fit the "state songs" theme of the album.
