Retire in Weakley County
Weakley County Chamber of Commerce
I sit on my porch on a warm summerís eve
peace with the sun going down
mind wanders back to my childhood days
Growing up in a small southern town.
was a town where you knew everyone
And where you liked most everybody you knew
town where families helped others in need
And where others were there to help you.
was a time when kids going to school
Were actually encouraged to pray
And you didnít worry about offending someone
If you chose to observe Christmas day.
was a time where deals were made
And then sealed by two men shaking hands
And a place where nothing was valued more
Than the character and the word of a man.
was also a time of warm summer days
That now seem - so very long ago
Days filled with friends - baseball and bible school
And Saturday afternoon picture shows.
a place to live during oneís early years
better place could never be found
am pleased to say that I was born right here
this great little Tennessee town.
