Welcome Back Home to Graves County
Where our chicken is fried
Our barbeque is pulled
And our fish is cat
Where you can get grandma's banana pudding
and chocolate pie and coconut pie with meringue
a mile high
Where you can get sweet tea and sweet cornbread
In Graves County we work hard for a living
and we're proud of it!
We've got a great work ethic and we teach that to our children.
We're farmers and retailers and factory workers
and bankers and cooks and technicians.
We have a good life here for not a lot of money
'Cause money's important but
so is our faith, our farms and our families.
We're Cardinals and Eagles and Wildcats and Cardinals.
We work hard and we play hard.
We ride ATVs and horses.
We fish and hunt and shop and
visit the people who are important to us.
We were born here, we moved here, we married people from here.
We raise our families here.
We plan to die here.
And if you stop by we'll make sure you're loaded up
with farm fresh eggs and country ham and sausage
right out of the smokehouse
We'd love to have you come for dinner
or for awhile
'cause in Graves County, we're back home . . .
