The song "Here We Have Idaho," sometimes known as "Our Idaho," the music for which was composed by Sallie Hume Douglas, is hereby designated and declared to be the state song of the state of Idaho; provided that credit is given to McKinley Helm for composing the words of the chorus as follows:
"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".
Providing further, that credit is given to Albert J. Tompkins for composing the words of the verses as follows:
First verse–"You’ve heard of the wonders our land does possess
Its beautiful valleys and hills
The majestic forests where nature abounds
We love every nook and rill."
Second verse–"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."
