The Southwest Rouser
by Kenneth Dixon, Class of 1943

 Cheer South-west on to vic-tor-y
Cheer her on to-day,
Spread her fame and her fair name,
With constant loy-al-ty


March on South-west, March on-ward;
Victory's sure this time.
Fight for the pur-ple and white
Fight Southwest Fight!

Let's shout it from the hill-tops
Prove it every way.
Tell the world we're here to see
A Southwest vic-tor-y!


 When from these halls we leave thee
Loyal we will be
True to the pur-ple and white
Fight Southwest Fight.
