Old man Goolsby dug this pool
With sweat and tears, and a team of mules
And for years to come people came to this place.
Fished for the moon. Sang “Amazing grace.”
How sweet the sound at Goolsby’s pool.

Through the years, old Goolsby’s pool’s been
Home to lovers, friends and fools.
By the old mill stream and that sweet sugar cane
Baptized their babies. Thanked God for the rain.
How sweet the sound at Goolsby’s pool.

Oh let’s go down to Goolsby’s pool.
There’s hallowed ground at Goolsby’s pool.
Lay our burdens down at Goolsby’s pool.
And hear the sweetest sounds.

To this day at Goolsby’s pool
The blessings flow and the waters cool.
From the deep spring hollow to the high pine trees.
Dream on the water. Make more memories.
How sweet the sound at Goolsby’s pool.
