Subject: old song about idaho and missouri
From: GUEST,juliana
Date: 12 Jul 07 - 09:25 PM

My uncle is looking for the rest of an old song that he remembers from his childhood. This is what he remembers
    "They say you're going from me and Idaho to Missouri to where sun will always shine...
    but it rains just the same in Missouri as it does here in old Idaho"
If anyone knows the rest or any more to this, please email me at rockon1125@hotmail.com. Thanks.

IT RAINS THE SAME IN MISSOURI

Your silent tears are falling on your suitcase filled with clothes.
Your trembling lips are telling me we're through.
You say you're going far away from me and Idaho
To Missouri where the hurt can't get to you.

But that silver bird can't hide you from the cloudy things in life.
Don't let a lovers' quarrel end it all.
You can't run away and hide yourself when things don't go just right.
Anywhere you are, the tears are sure to fall.

CHORUS: Cause it rains just the same in Missouri
As it does here in old Idaho.
You'll cry just the same as you find that it rains
In Missouri or wherever you go.

You seem to think that leaving me and Idaho behind
Will keep all the rainy days from you,
But out there in Missouri, the sun won't always shine,
And you're sure to find the sky's not always blue. CHORUS

Well, I'd bet "Stranger" got the lyrics here (click). Stranger, have I heard you sing this one? Seems to me this might be the kind of thing you sing only after 4 AM.

Subject: Lyr Add: AWAY, IDAHO
From: Charley Noble
Date: 13 Jul 07 - 03:44 PM

This one does not appear to be in the Digital Archives.

Collected by Frank Warner from Deac (C. T.) Martin, 1952
Recorded by Frank Warner on OUR SINGING HERITAGE, Elektra records, 1958.
Published in TRADITIONAL AMERICAN FOLK SONGS, edited by Anne Warner, Syracuse University, © 1984, pp. 441-442

AWAY, IDAHO (We're Coming, Idaho)

CHORUS: Away, Idaho!
We're coming Idaho;
Our four-horse team
Will soon be seen
Way out in Idaho!

They say there is a land,
Where the crystal waters flow
O'er beds of ore of purest gold
Way out in Idaho! CHORUS

We'll need no sieve or spade,
No shovel, pan or hoe;
The largest chunks lay top of ground,
Way out in Idaho! CHORUS

We'll face hard times no more,
And want we'll never know,
When we have filled our packs with gold,
Way out in Idaho! CHORUS

Warner notes that this song should not be confused with a railroading song of the same title.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Shoulda finished that last post. Katie recorded it on "Cookin' with Katie" with the Kate Laur Band back in, I believe, the early '70's.

If you are in the Cincinnati area and have a chance to hear Katie perform, jump at it. Dynamite voice, good song writer, and an all round nice woman.

Wasn't there a famous song called "The Idaho Spud"?

Janie - which song was written by Ray Griff? The one Charley posted, or the one from the Mysterious Stranger (It Rains the Same In Missouri).

Ray Griff wrote "It Rains Just the Same in Missouri."

listen here for a sample of Mac Wiseman's rendition, which I prefer to the Ray Griff sample available on his own website.

Jennie Lou Carson wrote the song with co-writer Gene Autry in 1945. Sure would like the words as well as an audible of the song. Thanks for your help -- I hope.

I just read the lyrics of the song, and I think the lady might improve her life quite a bit by getting away from that jeering, obvious-stating, know-it-all.

By the way, I've been to both Idaho and Missouri. It may rain in Missouri as in Idaho, but in Missouri winter doesn't end in May and start again in August.

Hi Richard.

To which song are you referring? Ray Griff wrote "It Rains Just the Same in Missouri" and there recordings of it on Youtube.   Charlie posted another song, "Away, Idaho" to this thread. Was that song written by Carson and Autry?
