The LSU Tigers 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 Tiger Stadium on a fall afternoon played by the Louisiana State University “Golden Band from Tigerland” Marching Band.
What are the Lyrics to the LSU Fight Song?
The LSU fight song is called “Fight for LSU.” It was written by Castro Carazo in the 1940s.
Here are the lyrics to the LSU fight song:
Like Knights of old, Let’s fight to hold
The glory of the Purple Gold.
Let’s carry through, Let’s die or do
To win the game for dear old LSU.
Keep trying for that high score;
Come on and fight,
We want some more, some more.
Come on you Tigers, Fight! Fight! Fight!
for dear old L-S-U.

The LSU band has several other popular songs that it plays during the course of an athletics event. This has led to some confusion over which song is actually the fight song. While “Fight for LSU” is the school’s fight song, let’s also look at some of the other songs the band plays.
Listen To “Tiger Rag” (Hold that Tiger)
This song is often played after LSU touchdowns, which leads to some confusion on it being the fight song. It’s not, but it is a great celebratory song for Tigers fans.

What are the Lyrics to the LSU Alma Mater?
The LSU alma mater has the following lyrics:
Where stately oaks and broad magnolias
shade inspiring halls,
There stands our dear Old Alma Mater
who to us recalls
Fond memories that waken in our hearts
a tender glow,
And make us happy for the love
that we have learned to know.
All praise to thee our Alma Mater,
molder of mankind,
May greater glory, love unending
be forever thine.
Our worth in life will be thy worth
we pray to keep it true,
And may thy spirit live in us, forever L-S-U.
