lyrics

SCENIC IDAHO
words and music by Britt K. Arnesen

Scenic Idaho your lightning come and shook me
Thirsty grass in flames the drought fed the spark
They said that nothing could fight the wildfire between us
It burned so hot all summer long

I’ve had some time to do my thinking
Too many nights when I’m the smoke under your stars
I never thought you’d hold me there and keep me
But here we are back in the same old spot

And I just can’t stay mad at you for long
For every ounce of trouble you’ve got a pound of charm
I’m throwing up my hands, Babe, I’m sorry oh I’m wrong
Now please don’t stay mad at me so long

Maybe I’ll have better luck in Bozeman
Or Butte, America (man my hope is a mile high)
I see Our Lady of the Rockies from the Freeway
And wave goodbye across the Great Divide

I just can’t stay mad at you for long
For every ounce of trouble you’ve got a pound of charm
I’m throwing up my hands, Babe, I’m sorry oh I’m wrong
Now please don’t stay mad at me so long
Sometimes your best laid plans they turn out oh so wrong
Let's don't stay mad so long
