Walton County Tidbits

Ode To Walton
(by Lucile Anderson)

~To be sung to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic~

In the Northwest Part of Florida
There is a County Great
'Twas Established on November of 18 and 28
It Was Settled by Scotch and Irish
Pioneers so Brave
Along the Indian Trail.

Glory, Glory to Old Walton
Glory, Glory to Old Walton
Glory, Glory, Glory Walton
We Pledge Our Loyalty.

Our Forefathers First made Peace
With "Old Sam Story" Indian Chief
Whose Big Friendly Tribe Was Settled
On the South Bank of Bruce Creek
Then They Built Homes, Schools and Churches
In a Most Determined Way
For They Had Come to Stay.

Glory, Glory to Old Walton
Glory, Glory to Old Walton
Glory, Glory, Glory Walton
We Pledge Our Loyalty.

We Are Proud of All the Fine Things
That You'll Find In Our County
The Tall Pines, The Fertile Land, and Lakes
And Beaches of White Sand
Schools Above the Average
Of Which We All So Proudly Boast
Our County Can't Be Beat.

Glory, Glory to Old Walton
Glory, Glory to Old Walton
Glory, Glory, Glory Walton
The Best County in the State.
