There's a yeller rose of Idaho
That I'm agonna see
No other feller loves
In quite the ways as me
She laughed so when I left her
It pirt near ta broke my heart
I promised to return agin
And never more ta fart [sic].
CH: She's the cutest little spud queen
Thet Idaho ever knew
Her eyes are bright like rhinestones
They sparkle like the dew
You kin talk about your Clemmie
And sing of Lorny Lee
But the yeller rose of Idaho
Is the onlyest gal fer me.
Where the Snake and Salmon are flowin'
In the muskeeter-filled summer nights
She walks along ol' Main Street
Drummin' up trade every night
I know thet she remembers
When we parted long ago
I promised to get my clap cured
And never more ta go.
