My Native Carter County
Sandy Valley Enquirer
Thursday, December 10, 1942
By Madge Prather Tabor

O Carter, Carter, Carter,
   Part of a noble State,
Where women cling to piety
   And hearts of men are great.

O Carter, Carter, Carter,
   Your people love you so,
Your beauty lingers with them
   No matter where they go.

O Carter, Carter, Carter,
   They love your hills so high,
Nor ask a lovelier memory
   Than of your sunset sky.

O Carter, Carter, Carter,
   When sons must leave this soil,
They want no better bivouac
   Than "God's acre" of your soil.
