Poems by Murray Poets and Poems About Murray County
by Waymon R. Roberts
In Whitfield County, Georgia
Near the Murray County line,
A Tornado came a-sweeping,
And to pray they had no time.
It was on one Monday evening,
Just about 8:10 o'clock,
Perhaps they said, "Lord-a-mercy,"
As their homes began to rock.
A brave little boy tells the story,
After the cyclone passed them by;
He was blown some foreign distance,
Heard his mother's wounded cry.
He covered her with a blanket,
Which was a brave deed, you know;
But she's gone up yonder,
Onto that golden shore.
Oh, dear people, do take warning,
Listen to this awful fate;
There's coming another cyclone,
And it may be then too late,
Let us live this life for Jesus,
So we can enter through the gate;
For the time is a-coming on,
At the fastest kind of rate.
