My Idaho Home 
Written and performed by Ronee Blakley for the film Nashville.
Chords transcribed by prrulz.


Bb
Momma and Daddy raised me with love and care
F
They sacrificed, so I could have a better share
     Bb
They fed me and nursed me and sent me to school
      F                                             Bb
Momma taught me how to sing, Daddy lived the Golden Rules

       Eb                  Bb
When I think of the people alone and afraid
Eb                       Bb
Abandoned in wild like a fatherless child
  Bb
I think of my Momma and how she could sing
        F                                    Bb
In harmony with my Daddy, our laughter would ring.

(chorus)
Eb                F
Down the highway, on the beaches
Bb                    Eb
Just as far as memory reaches
Bb                             F
I still hear Daddy singin' his old Army songs
F                                      Bb
We'd laugh and count horses as we rode along.
F                           Bb
We were young then, we were together
F                                 Bb
We could bear floods and fire and bad weather
Bb
And now that I'm older, grown up on my own
  F                                           Bb
I still love Momma and Daddy best in my Idaho home.


Bb
Momma grew up on the prairies of Kansas
F
She was tender and sweet.
    Bb
The dust and tornadoes blew round her
         F                           Bb
But they left her straight up on her feet.
   Bb
My Daddy grew up on his own, more or less
                                F
His Momma died when he was just eleven.

He had seven sisters to raise him.
                               Bb
But he dreamed of his Momma in heaven.


    Eb                      Bb
His Daddy drank whiskey and had a sharp eye.
   Eb                    Bb
He sold chicken medicine farmers would buy.
Bb            
Together they hunted the fields and the farms
         F                                         Bb
When his daddy died, my Daddy rested in my Momma's arms.

(chorus)
Eb                F
Down the highway, on the beaches
Bb                    Eb
Just as far as memory reaches
Bb                             F
I still hear Daddy singin' his old Army songs
F                                      Bb
We'd laugh and count horses as we rode along.
F                           Bb
We were young then, we were together
F                                 Bb
We could bear floods and fire and bad weather
Bb
And now that I'm older, grown up on my own
  F                                           Bb
I still love Momma and Daddy best in my Idaho home.
Bb
And now that I'm older, grown up on my own
  F                                            Bb
I still love my Mom and Daddy best in my Idaho home.
