NOTE:
This is such a beautiful song: melancholy and strangely uplifting at the same
time. Recorded on the piano, here it is transcribed for guitar. If you finger-
pick the chords in the basic figure, it sounds quite good but is hard work at
this tempo. I play barré chords everywhere, but see what you think...
A cool song from one of the great songwriters out there. Enjoy!
INTRO:
[play: Dm Bb C G] [x4] 
VERSE:
In the [Dm]back of a [Bb]car on a [C]road in the [G]dark,
In the [Dm]stillicide, [Bb]silently [C]falling snow,[G]
I have [Dm]packed every[Bb]thing that I [C]own in a [G]bag,
And I'm [Dm]driving, I'm [Bb]driving to [C]Ida[G]ho,
[play: Dm Bb C G] [x2] 
A [Dm]poem for [Bb]leaving, a [C]reason to [G]go,
So I'm [Dm]driving, I'm [Bb]driving to [C]Ida[G]ho.
CHORUS:
'Cause I [F]can't [Dm]be any[Bb]one but me, anyone but me,
And I [F]can't [Dm]keep [Bb]dreaming that I'm free, dreaming that I'm free,
I don't want to [Gm]fall a-[C]sleep and watch my life from [Gm]fifty [C]feet,
My hands are on the [Gm]wheel so I'm [Bb]driving to [C]Ida-[F]ho,
[play: F C F C] 
'Cause I [F]hear it's [C]mighty [F]pretty.[C]..
VERSE:
And [Dm]oh, I've been [Bb]dumb, I've been [C]perfectly [G]beautiful,
[Dm]Lain on my [Bb]back buying [C]lovers with [G]stealth,
But I'm [Dm]sick of you [Bb]all, and I'm [C]sick of o[G]pinions,
And I'm [Dm]sick of this [Bb]war I [C]wage on my[G]self...
BRIDGE:
I [Dm]don't know why I'm [C]so gripped to [Dm]go there[C] [-] [F] [-] [C]
A [Dm]universe [C]riddle that [Dm]only I [C]kn[-]ow[F]?[-] [C]
[Dm]Mr. Robert [Bb]says, "It's [C]all in the [G]head!"
Tell me, [Dm]Phaedrus, what's [Bb]good, is it [C]Ida-[G]ho?
CHORUS:
'Cause I [F]can't [Dm]be any[Bb]one but me, anyone but me,
And I [F]can't [Dm]keep [Bb]dreaming that I'm free, dreaming that I'm free,
I don't want to [Gm]fall a-[C]sleep and watch my life from [Gm]fifty [C]feet,
My hands are on the [Gm]wheel so I'm [Bb]driving to [C]Ida-[F]ho,
[play: F C F C] 
'Cause I [F]hear it's [C]mighty [F]pretty.[C]..
[play: Dm Bb C G] [x4] 
[repeat CBORUS] 
[play: F C F C] 
'Cause I [F]hear it's [C]mighty [F]pretty.[C]..
...in [C]Ida-[F]ho.
