Best College Football Fight Songs

College Football School Fight Songs

In the ranks of college football, there are literally hundreds upon hundreds of fight songs.

Some are a bit bawdy, some are meant to pull at the heartstrings, and others are just downright boring.

But the best college fight songs have a magical way of drawing the crowd closer to the action and turning thousands of football fans into frothing-at-the-mouth fanatics.

Below, I have collected what I believe to be the best college football fight songs. Maybe it�s the lyrics, or maybe it�s the accompanying music. Whatever the case, these songs will get a college crowd fired up like no other. If you�re familiar with any of the tunes below, I dare you to read the lyrics without starting to hum the tune in your head.

Fight Song for the Clemson Tigers

Long ago way down in the jungle
Someone got an inspiration for a tune
And that jingle came from the jungle
Became famous mighty soon
Thrills and chills it sends through you
Hot so hot it burns you too
Though it’s just the growl of the Tiger
It was written in a syncopated way
More and more they yell for the Tiger
Everywhere you go today, they’re shoutin:
Where’s that Tiger?
Where’s that Tiger?
Where’s that Tiger?
Where’s that Tiger?
Hold that Tiger!
Hold that Tiger!
Hold that Tiger!
C-L-E-M-S-O…N!

Fight Song for the Army Black Knights

The Army team’s the pride and dream
Of every heart in gray.
The Army line you’ll ever find
A terror in the fray;
And when the team is fighting
for the Black and Gray and Gold,
We’re always near with song and cheer
And this is the tale we’re told:
The Army team
(Band and whistle)
Rah Rah Rah
(cannon shot)
On, brave old Army team,
On to the fray:
Fight on to victory,
For that’s the fearless Army way.

Fight Song for the Auburn Tigers

War… Eagle, fly down the field.
Ever to conquer, never to yield.
War… Eagle, fearless and true.
Fight on, you orange and blue.
Go! Go! Go!
On to vict’ry, strike up the band.
Give ‘em hell, give ‘em hell;
Stand up and yell, Hey!
War…Eagle win for Auburn,
Power of Dixie Land!

Fight Song for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer,
A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer,
Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear,
I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer.

Oh, if I had a daughter, sir, I’d dress her in White and Gold,
And put her on the campus, to cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son, sir, I’ll tell you what he’d do.
He would yell, "To Hell with Georgia," like his daddy used to do.

Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum and sugar three thousand pounds,
A college bell to put it in and a clapper to stir it around.
I’d drink to all good fellows who come from far and near.
I’m a ramblin’, gamblin’, hell of an engineer.

Fight Song for the Michigan Wolverines

Now for a cheer they are here, triumphant!
Here they come with banners flying,
In stalwart step they’re nighing,
With shouts of vict’ry crying,
We hurrah, hurrah, we greet you now, Hail!

Far we their praises sing
For the glory and fame they’ve brought us
Loud let the bells them ring
For here they come with banners flying
Far we their praises tell
For the glory and fame they’ve brought us
Loud let the bells them ring
For here they come with banners flying
Here they come, Hurrah!

Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
The leaders and best!
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
The champions of the West!

We cheer them again
We cheer and cheer again
For Michigan, we cheer for Michigan
We cheer with might and main
We cheer, cheer, cheer
With might and main we cheer!

Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
The champions of the West!

Fight Song for the Michigan State Spartans

On the banks of the Red Cedar
There’s a school that’s known to all
Its specialty is winning
And those Spartans play good ball
Spartan Teams are never beaten
All through the game they’ll fight
Fight for the only colors
Green and White
Go right through for MSU
Watch the points keep growing
Spartan Teams are bound to win,
they’re fighting with a vim
Rah! Rah! Rah!
See their team is weakening
We’re going to win this game!
Fight! Fight! Rah, Team, Fight!
Victory for MSU!

Fight Song for the Navy Rams

Stand Navy down the field,
Sails set to the sky,
We’ll never change our course,
So Army you steer shy – y – y – y
Roll up the score Navy,
Anchors Aweigh,
Stand Navy down the field,
And SINK the Army, SINK the Army grey!
N…A…V…Y…Gooooo Navy!

Fight Song for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Rally sons of Notre Dame
Sing her glory and sound her fame
Raise her Gold and Blue
And cheer with voices true:
Rah, rah, for Notre Dame
We will fight in every game,
Strong of heart and true to her name
We will ne’er forget her
And will cheer her ever
Loyal to Notre Dame.

Cheer, cheer for Old Notre Dame,
Wake up the echoes cheering her name,
Send a volley cheer on high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky!
What though the odds be great or small,
Old Notre Dame will win over all,
While her loyal sons are marching
Onward to victory!

Fight Song for the Ohio State Buckeyes

Fight the team across the field
Show them Ohio’s here,
Set the earth reverberating
With a mighty cheer,
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Hit them hard and see how they fall,
Never let that team get the ball,
Hail, hail, the gang’s all here,
So let’s win that old conference now.

Fight Song for the University of Southern California Trojans

Fight on for ol’ SC,
Our men fight on to victory.
Our Alma Mater dear
Looks up to you,
Fight on and win
For ol’ SC

Fight Song for the Tennessee Volunteers

Wish that I was on old Rocky Top
Down in the Tennessee hills.
Ain’t no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top
Ain’t no telephone bills.
Once I had a girl on Rocky Top
Half bear, the other half cat,
Wild as a mink, but sweet as soda-pop
I still dream about that.

(Chorus)
Rocky Top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good old Rocky Top,
Rocky Top, Tennessee.
Rocky Top, Tennessee.
Once two strangers climbed old Rocky Top
Lookin’ for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain’t come down from Rocky Top,
Reckon they never will.
Corn won’t grow at all on Rocky Top
Dirt’s too rocky by far.
That’s why all the folks on Rocky Top
Get their corn from a jar.

(Repeat Chorus)
I’ve had years of cooped up city life,
Trapped like a dog in a pen.
All I know is it’s a pity life
Can’t be simple again.

(Repeat Chorus)
Rocky Top, Tennessee!

Fight Song for the Texas A&M Aggies

Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
All hail to dear old Texas A & M,
Rally around the Maroon and White,
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies,
They are the boys who show the real old fight.
That good old Aggie spirit thrills us
And makes us yell and yell and yell;
So let’s fight for dear old Texas A & M,
We’re goin’ beat you all to–
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem!
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem!
Rough! Tough! Real Stuff! Texas A & M!

Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Hullabaloo, Caneck! Caneck!
Good-bye to Texas University
So long to the Orange and the White
Good luck to the dear old Texas Aggies
They are the boys that show the real old fight
"The eyes of Texas are upon you…"
That is the song they sing so well
So good-bye to Texas University
We’re going to beat you all to–
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Chig-gar-roo-gar-rem
Rough Tough! Real Stuff! Texas A & M!

Saw Varsity’s horns off!

Fight Song for the Washington & Lee Generals

Come cheer for Washington and Lee,
We’re going to win another victory!
The White and Blue we will ever wave in triumph
For the University. RAH! RAH! RAH!
Fight to the finish we are with you,
Break through the line on every play;
Rush the ball on down the field
And we will win this game today.

When Washington and Lee’s men fall in line,
We’re going to win again another time;
For W&L I yell, I yell, I yell,
And for the University, I yell, like hell!
And we will fight! fight! fight! for every yard;
Circle the ends and hit that line right hard!
And we will roll those Wahoos on the sod!
Yes, by God! RAH! RAH! RAH!
HEY!

Fight Song for the Texas Longhorns

The eyes of Texas are upon you,
All the live long day.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
You cannot get away.
Do not think you can escape them,
At night, or early in the morn.
The eyes of Texas are upon you,
‘Till Gabriel blows his horn!
