One of the oldest traditions of college football is learning the fight song. These songs are important to colleges all over the world. You may not know the songs or words, but if you hear them, the songs become immediately familiar.

Many of the songs come with a great history. One of the first things a new Razorback does is learn to sing the University of Arkansas fight song. I didn’t realize it, but the Arkansas Fight song was written in the late 1920s. It is unique and goes perfectly with our Razorback mascot. Several other colleges have adapted the tune, but the lyrics remain unique to Arkansas.

Hit that line! Hit that line!
Keep on going!
Take that ball right
down the field!
Give a cheer. Rah! Rah!
Never fear. Rah! Rah!
Arkansas will never yield!
On your toes, Razorbacks,
to the finish,
Carry on with all your might!
For it’s A-A-A-R-K-A-N-S-A-S
for Arkansas!
Fight! Fight! Fi-i-i-ight!
