okay so i've been reading over a bit of theory today and i have a question on chord progressions

if i'm making a song in the key of c, can i just form a chord out of any of the notes on the c major scale and have it be in key? this seems overly simplistic to me, but then again i have no idea...help please?

thanks

Pretty much
But for it to REALLY be in the key stick with these chords
C major
D minor
E minor
F Major
G major
A minor
B diminished

well i mean that was just an example, but what im getting at is if you take the major scale that the key is derived from (ie c major for key of c, g major for key of g) you can just take notes from those scales to form chords and chord progressions that will be in key...right?
