MURRAY COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL
(Placed on the National Register of Historic Places June 21, 2004)

The Alma Mater
by Lula Gladden

From the cliffs of old Cohutta
Once against the sky
Came the walls of Alma Mater
So rugged and so high.

Chorus
Forward ever be our watchword
Conquer without fail;
For our hearts shall love thee ever,
Alma Mater, Hail!

Zephyrs blow among our pine trees,
Our hall, a harvest queen;
Diamonds sparkling on the dew drops,
Make our lawn a sheen.
Murray County High School,
Dear Murray County High School,
Always our hearts shall ne'er careen;
But loyal to our colors ever,
Just pure white and green.
For this oasis on life's desert,
We shall breath a sigh.
To the fountain of the purest,
We'll turn to Murray High.

(Wonder how many students knew that zephyrs are soft, gentle breezes? Heck! Wonder how many knew all of the words?!?)
