The Arkansas Razorbacks have one of the more recognizable fight songs in all of college football.
It’s just one of the many memorable fight songs in the SEC. You’ll often hear it at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on a fall afternoon played by University of Arkansas Razorback Marching Band.
What are the Lyrics to the Arkansas Fight Song?
The Arkansas fight song is called “Arkansas Fight!”
Here are the lyrics:
Hit that line!
Hit that line!
Keep on going!
Move 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!

What are the Lyrics to the Arkansas Alma Mater?
The Arkansas alma mater has the following lyrics:
Pure as the dawn on the brow of thy beauty,
Watches thy Soul from the mountains of God.
Over the fates of thy children departed,
Far from the land where their footsteps have trod.
Beacon of hope in the ways dreary lighted,
Pride of our hearts that are loyal and true.
From those who adore unto one who adores us,
Mother of Mothers, we sing unto you.
