Alma Mater

The Alma Mater

All Hail, O Davidson

All Hail, O Davidson,
Our dear old alma mater.
Thy founders loved thee,
Gave their best to thee.
We still today,
Thy loyal sons and daughters,
Follow them on,
And pledge our loyalty.

The Fight Song

O, Davidson!

O, Davidson! you are the best
Old College in the East or West.
You play the fair game
You play the square game.
And you win in everything.
And when the Red and Black machine
Is out to fight and looking mean -
Then I am happy as for you I sing.

Chorus

O, Davidson! we will down them
Down them every one;
O, Davidson! we will conquer
Ere the day is done
Down every foe, then
as through their lines we run;
win for the honor of old Davidson
