Shelbyville

Blue River

soccer fields

Drive in

Cabells

DQ and Kroger

These are all a part of

what I like to call my

hometown

 

Small and quiet

slightly dramatic

Busy and Slow

a little bit of both

 

Taco Bell, McD's

Taproom and the Pub

 

We take pride

in the Golden Bears

and the story we all read

in the 3rd grade

about how

Shelbyville

came to be

 

This is my hometown

small and busy

quiet and slow

Food to eat

and too many banks

to count

 

Close friends

the world seems so small

welcome to the hometown

of the corn festival

or the Blue River Festival

Booths and food

Play slides and

Sunset Park

 

Welcome to the home

of the Golden Bears

Comets, Bull Dogs

and the Hurricanes

Welcome to the town

that I like to call

Home.
