Golden Kitten:
The Tuskegee Song
In honor of Tuskegee University's 25th Anniversary in 1906, Paul Laurence Dunbar was asked by Founder, Booker T. Washington, to write a poem capturing the Tuskegee spirit. The following words were authored by Dunbar, America's most famous Black poet at the time, in compliance with Washington's request. A melody suggested by Dunbar was replaced at a later time by the present tune composed by Nathaniel Clark Smith, Tuskegee University Band Director (1906-1913).

The Tuskegee Song
by Paul Laurence Dunbar


Tuskegee, thou pride of the swift growing South
We pay thee our homage today
For the worth of thy teaching, the joy of thy care;
And the good we have known 'neath thy sway.
Oh, long-striving mother of diligent sons
And of daughters whose strength is their pride,
We will love thee forever and ever shall walk
Thro' the oncoming years at thy side.


Thy Hand we have held up the difficult steeps,
When painful and slow was the pace,
And onward and upward we've labored with thee
For the glory of God and our race.
The fields smile to greet us, the forests are glad,
The ring of the anvil and hoe
Have a music as thrilling and sweet as a harp
Which thou taught us to hear and to know.


Oh, mother Tuskegee, thou shinest today
As a gem in the fairest of lands;
Thou gavest the Heav'n-blessed power to see
The worth of our minds and our hands.
We thank thee, we bless thee, we pray for thee years
Imploring with grateful accord,
Full fruit for thy striving, time longer to strive,
Sweet love and true labor's reward.

Live from Under the Shed...

The sloping hills, the verdant green,
The lovely blossoms' beauteous sheen
Surround our college proud and gay,
Where wave our colors, Maroon and Gray.
What matters it how far we roam?
Our thoughts will oft return to home,
And hearts will e'er be true to thee,
Our Alma Mater, N.C.C.

Refrain :
Then Rah! Rah! Rah! For our colors so gay!
Dear old N.C.C.'s Maroon and Gray;
Thy sons and daughters will honor thee,
Dear old N.C.C.

We've gathered here to fit our lives,
As from the darkness light revives,
So let us hail, both night and day,
Our glorious colors, Maroon and Gray.
We'll ever love and honor thee,
For thou hast taught us loyalty.
Then let our watchword “service” be,
To Alma Mater, N.C.C.

You send us forth with hearts of love;
So like a blessing from above,
And from the path we'll never stray,
Our dear Alma Mater, Maroon and Gray.
We'll work and fight, we'll win our way.
When duty calls, we shall obey.
And may we e'er return to thee,
Our Alma Mater, N.C.C!

Until all the heavens and echoes loudly ring.

In downfall or vict’ry, We’ll always loyal be.

As pure and true as the Gold and Blue,

Alma Mater

Alabama A&M
Rich in Heritage divine
Bless’d by the life of Councill brave
Who gave his all that thou might’st shine.

Many thy brave and loyal sons
Sent from thy shrine on Normal’s Hill
Filled with a zeal for tasks well done
Anxious thy mandates to fulfill.

Long may you live to bless the world
For right and justice take a stand
As from your rocky heights you view
Your children’s work throughout the land.

Alma Mater, blest be thy name.
Long live thy fame; long live thy fame!
