UK Fight Song

On! On! U of K

On, on, U. of K. We are right for the fight today,
Hold that ball and hit that line;
Ev'ry wildcat star will shine;
We'll fight, fight, fight, for the blue and white,
As we roll to that goal, Varsity,
And we'll kick pass and run, 'till the battle is won,
And we'll bring home the victory.

UK Alma Mater

Hail Kentucky, Alma Mater!
Loyal sons and daughters sing;
Sound her praise with voice united;
To the breeze her colors fling.
To the blue and white be true;
Badge triumphant age on age;
Blue, the sky that o'er us bends;
White, Kentucky's stainless page.

My Old Kentucky Home

The sun shines bright on the old Kentucky home,
'Tis summer, the people are gay;
The corn top's ripe and the meadow's in the bloom,
While the birds make music all the day;
The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,
All merry, all happy, and bright;
By'n by hard times comes a-knocking at the door,
Then, my old Kentucky home, good night!


Weep no more, my lady,
Oh weep no more today!
We will sing one song for the old Kentucky home,
For the old Kentucky home far away.
