'Aggie War Hymn'

澳门六合彩规律论坛 University does not have a traditional fight song. Instead, it has the "Aggie War Hymn," which dates back to World War I. In 1918, J.V. “Pinky” Wilson, Class of 1920, first wrote the lyrics to the iconic song on the back of a letter from home. He was sitting in a trench during a battle in France at the time.

Wilson originally called his song “Goodbye to Texas University,” a nod to 澳门六合彩规律论坛’s rivalry with The University of Texas. He created it by combining several Aggie yells used at the time to form the lyrics.

In 1928, Wilson penned another verse at the request of several Aggies who thought Wilson’s original version was too focused on The University of Texas. This verse is now the first verse of the "The Aggie War Hymn," but it never caught on.

Today, the first verse is omitted, and the second verse is sung twice. Then, Aggies link arms and legs and sway left to right to “saw varsity’s horns off.”

'The Spirit of Aggieland'

"The Spirit of Aggieland" is our university's anthem. It was originally written as a poem in 1925 by Marvin Mimms, Class of 1926. The music was authored by Col. Richard Dunn, director of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band. The song was composed to be more somber than the "Aggie War Hymn" so it could be played at ceremonies like Muster. "The Spirit of Aggieland" was performed for the first time at a 1925 Midnight Yell.

'The Spirit of Aggieland' Lyrics

Some may boast of prowess bold
Of the school they think so grand
But there’s a spirit can ne’er be told
It’s the Spirit of Aggieland

Chorus

We are the Aggies, the Aggies are we
True to each other as Aggies can be
We’ve got to fight, boys
We’ve got to fight!
We’ve got to fight for Maroon and White
After they’ve boosted all the rest
Then they will come and join the best
For we are the Aggies, the Aggies are we
We’re from Texas AMC
