Happy Birthday Idaho!


Idaho officially became a state on July 3, 1890.  The state song of Idaho is "Here we have Idaho" and it is one of the most beautiful songs of all time.  Here are the lyrics.


Here We Have Idaho Written by McKinley Helm & Albert J. Tompkins
Composed by Sallie Hume-Douglas

You've heard of the wonders our land does possess,
It's beautiful valleys and hills,
The majestic forests where nature abounds,
We love every nook and rill.
chorus
And here we have Idaho
Winning her way to fame.
Silver and gold in the sunlight blaze,
and romance lies in her name.
Singing, we're singing of you,
Ah, proudly too,
All our lives thru, we'll go
Singing, singing of you,
Singing of Idaho.
There's truly one state in this great land of ours
Where ideals can be realized.
The pioneers made it so for you and me,
A legacy we'll always prize.
chorus
