"ODE TO WALTER LOWE"
Way back in old Scott County
In the hills of Tennessee
There lives a truly great hero
Who fought for you and me
On the battle fields of Europe
In a war now know as Two
He won many medals with honor
Defending our country so true
Through all the pain and suffering
This young man had to go through
He fought for freedom for his family
And for the old red white and blue
Now everyone pay close attention
This is someone we all know
Who fought for God and Country
His name is Walter (Smoky) Lowe
Now Walter still lives in the mountains
And with love for the world to see
So let us all respect this hero
From Scott County Tennessee
This poem was written by me in the Summer of 1968.
I gave it to Walter Lowe and his wife Eva as a present.
Walter and Eva has since passed on.
Walter's photograph hangs in the courthouse in Scott County, Tennessee.
