Westerner Call To Loyalty
"Westerners, put on your chaps,
Buckle on your spurs,
Loosen up the reins of our old fighting Westerners.
Sportsmanship, then victory is the motto of our high,
Come along, you brave old Westerners, we will do or die.
We will gallop over all the sweeping prairie land,
We will fight for biack and gold, true Westerner brand.
Lubbock High in golden letters, we will glorify,
Come along, you brave old Westerners; we will do or die.”
Westerner Challenge (Fight Song)“Hail, hardy Westerners!
O’er the plains
Your challenge hurl!
Through loss or victory,
With our banner high,
All the while we go marching on,
We proudly sing our victory song.
Fight! Let the game start.
Fight! Boys with all your heart.
Fight! Westerners, fight.”
By Missy Parrish Stark*
Remember when we walked the halls,
Rushing to our next class;
Or the times we just gathered on the lawn,
Just to talk and sit on the grass!
Or how about the Friday nights,
And all those football games;
When we were so full of hope,
Our visions full of fortunes and fames!
Remember how proud we stood,
On graduation day;
And the sorrow that we felt,
As we went our separate way!
It's hard to believe how much we've changed,
In the fifty-five years that have passed;
But the friendships that we built back then,
Today, they still hold fast.
