Southern U. Alma Mater and Fight Song
Southern U. Alma Mater
O Southern, Dear Southern, Thy praises we shall sing,
Until all the heavens and echoes loudly ring.
The winds and the sky as they pass us by
Will Adoration bring.
O Southern, Dear Southern, We owe our all to Thee,
In downfall or vict'ry, We'll always loyal be.
Thy Sons and Daughters as they work,
Will be inspired by Thee.
O Southern, Dear Southern, Thy name will ever be,
As mighty as the rivers that flow on to the sea,
As pure and true as the Gold and Blue,
That stand out bold for Thee.
(Original Words and Music by R.E. Brown, Jr.)
Southern U. Fight Song
Defenders of the gold and blue
We will always loyal be
And raise a cheer for you.
All for one and one for all
We've got the will to win for thee
And We'll fight, fight, fight
Til we win the victory.
(Huel Perkins, 1951)
