Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
by A. Booster
Here's to old Murray, numbered with the rest;
In Whitfield, good roads and sidewalks they delight.
Cross the river into Murray and the roads are a fright.
Writing this piece may be a blunder,
But, wake up, old Murray, come out of that dead number;
You have moved the court house, that's a sure go;
Come on, old Murray, and do not be slow.
They talk about us from the east unto the west,
So come on, boys, and let's do our best,
Build pike roads, vote bonds, that's a snap,
If we don't do something they'll forget we're on the map.
Let's get together and build a town
That will be known for miles around;
We have thousands of acres of good farm lands,
That will grown cotton and corn to beat the band.
Now all we need is a market to begin,
Chatsworth's the place, it's on the L. & N.,
Of the county it is the center,
It's climate's good and water better;
Our health is good Spring, Summer and Winter,
So what more do you want for a beginner?
We have a brick plant and a lumber mill,
We have others and from the noise they are not keeping still.
Our public school is numbered with the best,
We have good churches and you can see the rest.
Don't take our word, come see for yourself
There is work here a-plenty and will be some lft;
These few lines are the truth and you will see it so,
Come, bring your family, and help CHATSWORTH GROW.
