Where I'm From...
I'm from DeKalb County in the fall
when the fair pulls in
and rides are set up,
animals fill the barns
and doughnut smells drift in the air.
I'm from DeKalb County in late September
when 4-H is more than a club
when animals are shown
and the largest pumpkin
gets a blue ribbon.
I'm from DeKalb County on September 27th
when families line the streets,
local bands march in a high step,
floats roll by with paper flowers
and politicians shake your hand.
I'm proud to be from DeKalb County!
