The Ole Miss fight song is called “Forward Rebels.”
Here are the lyrics:
March to fame
Hit that line and win this game
We know that you’ll fight it through
For your colors Red and Blue — Fight, Fight, Fight.
Rebels you’re the Southland’s pride
Take that ball and hit your stride
Don’t stop ’till the victory’s won, For your Ole Miss.
Fight, fight for your Ole Miss.

What are the Lyrics to the Ole Miss Alma Mater?
The Ole Miss alma mater has the following lyrics:
Way down south in Mississippi, There’s a spot that ever calls
Where among the hills enfolded. Stand Old Alma Mater’s Halls.
Where the trees lift high their branches, To the whisp’ring southern breeze.
There Ole Miss is calling, calling, to our hearts’ fond memories.
With united hearts we praise thee, All our loyalty is thine,
And we hail thee, Alma Mater, may thy light forever shine;
May it brighter grow and brighter, And with deep affection true,
Our thoughts shall ever cluster ’round thee, Dear Old Red and Blue.
My thy fame throughout the nation, Through thy sons and daughters grow,
May thy name forever waken, In our hearts a tender glow,
May thy counsel and thy spirit, Ever keep us one in this,
That our own shall be thine honor, Now and ever dear Ole Miss.
