Stadium February 2004

Here are the lyrics to the Alma Mater and the Fight song:

Alma Mater:

By the mighty Mississippi

On a rocky shore,

Stands the school we love so dearly

Now and Ever more.


Alma Mater, Alma Mater,

We thy children as of old,

Sing thy praise in song unending

To the Crimson and the Gold.

(Second Verse)

Tho' the future years may part us

Still together now,

Faith and love to old Rock Island

Ever more we vow.


(Written by Jack Rasley in 1930

Fight Song:
In the class, on the field
We will bear the victors' shield
As our High School keeps marching along.
We're the flower of the State,
Others go to meet their fate,
As our High School keeps marching along.
Then we'll give our best, for old RIHS,
Give her a cheer loud and strong, Rah Rah.
For where ere we go, you will always know
That our High School keeps marching along,
Yes our High School keeps marching along.
