On Iowa  | Roll Along Iowa  | Iowa Fight Song  | Alma Mater

On Iowa
On, Iowa, proudly at the fore,
On, Iowa, on forever more,

Ev’ry loyal son will give a rousing toast to you,
Ev’ry loyal daughter loves you true,

On, Iowa, with your wealth untold,
A heritage to us you did unfold,

Love of family, love of friend,
Love of country, too, makes us proud for what you stand,
Our dear Old Gold

Roll Along Iowa
Roll along, Iowa, Roll down the field,
On to victory!

Roll along, Iowa, Don’t ever yield,
Always a winner be!

Get that ball, Give your all,
For dear Old Gold,
Raise her banner high!

With firm endeavor,
Roll on forever, U. of I.

Iowa Fight Song
(Meredith Wilson)
The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! for IOWA,”
Let every loyal Iowan sing;

The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! for IOWA,
Until the walls and rafters ring (Rah! Rah!)

Come on and cheer, cheer, cheer, for IOWA
Come on and cheer until you hear the final gun.

The word is “Fight! Fight! Fight! for IOWA,”
Until the game is won.


Alma Mater
Come all alums of Iowa,
And blend your voices true;

Sing praises to our Alma Mater,
As good Hawkeyes do.

Let’s keep within our hearts a fire
To magnify her fame;

Bring credit to these noble halls
Where glory and honor reign.

The day is near when comrades here
Will bid farewell and part;

But each Hawkeye carries on,
They spirit in his heart.

Oh! Iowa, Iowa, we drink a toast to you;
We pledge our everlasting love for dear old Iowa U.
