Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
In the shadow of old Cohutta
Not far from Maddox Hill
Is the little town of Spring Place
And a school called Lucy Hill.
Then three cheers for Spring Place and give them with a will
Three rousing cheers for Spring Place and three for Lucy Hill.
Friends we are to Spring Place and friends we'll ever be.
For Lucy Hill and Spring Place are good enough for me.
What's that awful noise we hear
Come rolling o'er the land?
That's not an earthquake, children,
That's just the Eton band.
The hissing and the rattle
Disturb you as they pass
Don't be alarmed, children,
It's just the natural gas.
Three miles east of town you will find
All on the L & N
will someday be the capital
And they will tell you when.
They boast about the guano mill
Perhaps it's just as well...
No trouble finding Chatsworth,
You will know it by its smell.
