    As a Purdue alumni, I have to say that I never really cared that much for the fight song lyrics. It was the phrase "our friendship may she never lack" that killed it for me. It's a bad rhyme and I always felt bad singing it. The tune is just fine, though.

    It's not down to just those 3 is it? 'Cause we all know that Tennessee's is pretty much the overall fave. [​IMG]

    Once two strangers climbed ol' Rocky Top,
    lookin' for a moonshine still;
    Stangers ain't come down from Rocky Top
    Reckon they never will;
    Corn don't grow at all on Rocky Top;
    Dirt's too rocky by far;
    That's why all the folks on Rocky Top
    get their corn from a jar

    Godd luck. Unfortunately, your fight song will not stand a chance against Notre Dame, Michigan or Navy in later rounds.

    I'm a Wisconsin fan, and applying to Northwestern for grad school, so I'll vote for someone else out of principle. [​IMG]

    Can you say Deadmeat?
    I am a huge fan of college ball but couldn't tell you if Purdue does, or doesn't have a fight song, much less know it if I heard it.
    On the other hand, I know the lyrics to Michigan's and recognize ND's, USC,s, Army's, Navy's, and the
    Air Force fight songs at the drop of a hat. I could take a pretty fair stab at much of their lyrics.
    Even everyday folks can identify and hum along with the fight songs of the big boys.
    Best of luck.
    You might get by CU, but you'd be best to keep your band's bus warmed up for the ride home.

    ahhh anti-fight songs. Our band has a policy, no negative cheering or swearing in uniform. So I don't get to use tehm too often. Michigan's is particularly nasty
