The Countdown 2011: 95 Days to Go

Learn the lyrics: “Hail to Georgia”

Every Dawg fan is familiar with the song, “Hail to Georgia”. Written in 1931 by Gaines Waller, it can be heard played by the Redcoat Band following extra points and during the Dawg walk. And while every Georgia fan knows the music, many people have no idea what the lyrics are to the song. The song goes like this:

Hail to Georgia down in Dixie!
A college honor’d, fair, and true;
The Red and Black is her standard, proudly it waves,
Streaming today and the ages through.
She’s the fairest in the Southland
We’ll pledge our love to her for aye;
To that college dear we’ll ring a cheer,
All hail to dear old UGA!

Hail, our Varsity of Georgia!
Thy sons will e’er thy glory sing;
To thee we’ll ever be faithful, loyal and true;
Ever and aye will thy praises ring.
Grand old times of ours at Georgia
The happiest days they’ll be alway;
Alma Mater, fair beyond compare,
All hail to dear old UGA!

I love the Glory to Hail Tag after Touchdowns, you guys tore it up. Hands down, Redcoats best marching band in the land. That's a bit of biased remark. Amanda Vanderpool
