John does like to kid about Idaho. He includes a potato related verse
in his version of "Our Goodman." You know, the "I never saw a [far
fetched explanation] where my [normal thing] ought to be" song. I think
he's the first person I've ever heard do it with a calypso beat.
"I've been all around the world taking all kind of chance. I never saw
a cat wearing a pair of pants."--Blind Boy Fuller, "Cat Man Blues"
