VERSE 01: In the great northwest in Idaho/lives a maiden you may know/With suitors by the score/With youth and beauty and friends galore/Hair as dusky as the night/Lips like rose leaves and black eyes so bright/When she smiles gay suitors gather fond and true/But one there is more bold/And to her his love he told.CHORUS: Flo, Flo my flo, my dainty Flo,/Rare little nugget I love her so/I can't live without you, my own Flo,/My Flo from Idaho./VERSE 02: To this far Western land one day/comes a stranger young and gay/To win he vainly tried/This fair maiden for his bried/She so sweetle answered no/Would not leave her dear Idaho/Happy he who dreams by day and dreams by night/Of her he loves so true/And she smiles as thus he woos.
