Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
In Murray County stands a town
Of sterling worth and wide renown;
And wondrous things from year to year
Of Ramhurst, Ga., you will hear.
The L & N on many a car
Brings varied riches from afar,
And scatters wide through many lands
The products of our busy hands.
Our Lumber Co.–Loomis & Blair
Are shipping lumber everywhere,
Which brings in dollars right along
To pay for labor good and strong.
Our bustling merchants, Smith and Terry
Are good and generous, wise and wary;
They almost give their goods away
And still contrive to make it pay.
The Smith Hotel is hard to beat
For all who love good things to eat;
While other boarding houses good
Will furnish you the best of food.
If you should have a thirst for knowledge,
We point with pride to Ramhurst College;
And if for Gospel Truth you search
We recommend Mt. Pisgah Church.
Our many hustling farmers near,
Find market for their produce here;
While all our people, day by day,
Are storing wads of wealth away.
The only thing our people fear
If this goes on from year to year
We'll be so rich some blessed minute
Old Rockyfellow won't be in it.
