Husker Fight Song Lyrics

Hail Varsity:
Hail to the team
The stadium rings as everyone sings,
The Scarlet and Cream.
Cheers for a victory, echo our loyalty;
So, on mighty men,
The eyes of the land, upon every hand,
Are looking at you.
Fight on for victory
Hail to the Men of Nebraska U.

Dear Old Nebraska U
(No Place Like Nebraska):

There is no place like Nebraska
Dear old Nebraska U.
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest,
Of any old school that I knew.
There is no place like Nebraska,
Where they're all true blue.
We'll all stick together,
In all kinds of weather,
For Dear old Nebraska U!

March of the Cornhusker:
Rally huskers, glory waits for you,
Rally huskers, show what you can do
Fight! forever, Oh! you team,
For the scarlet and the cream,
Go! Gang Go!
Rally huskers, rally one and all.
Fight on, huskers, hear Nebraska call,
Listen to the battle cry,
Of Nebraska U. N. I.

Band Song:
Hear the trumpets Playin'
Hear the crowd a sayin'
NU Band is on parade!
Hear the trombones blowin'
Hear the drums a rollin'
NU Band is on Parade!
Sound Out! Sound Out!
Sound out loud and clear
Let the team all know the Band is here.
Sons of Old Nebraska
If someone should ask ya
We're the Scarlet and the Cream!
. . . Followed by Hail Varsity.

The Cornhusker (Come a Runnin' Boys):
Come a runnin' boys
Don't you hear that noise like the thunder in the sky
How it rolls along in a good old song
From the sons of Nebraski.
Now it's coming near with a rising cheer
That will seep all foes away,
So with all our vim
We are bound to win and we're going to win today.

For Nebraska and the scarlet
For Nebraska and the cream,
Tho' they go thru many' a battle,
Our colors still are seen.
So in contest and in vict'ry
We will wave them for the team,
And 'twill always stir a Cornhusker,
The old scarlet and the cream.

2005 Tunnel Walk Prayer/Chant Lyrics

Dear Lord, the battles we go through life,
ask for a chance that's fair

A chance to equal our stride,
A chance to do or dare

If we should win, let it be by the code,
Faith and Honor held high

If we should lose, we'll stand by the road,
And cheer as the winners go by

Day by Day, we get better and better!
Til' we can't be beat...WON'T BE BEAT!
