Boston College Fight Song

"For Boston" is not just one of the college fight songs, it IS America's oldest college fight song, composed by T.J. Hurley in 1885. It has two verses but the most commonly sung one is the first verse. Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys covered this song on their album Sing Loud, Sing Proud!.



Fight Song: For Boston

For Boston, for Boston,
We sing our proud refrain!
For Boston, for Boston,
'Tis Wisdom's earthly fane.
For here all are one
And their hearts are true,
And the towers on the Heights
Reach to Heav'ns own blue.
For Boston, for Boston,
Till the echoes ring again!

For Boston, for Boston,
Thy glory is our own!
For Boston, for Boston,
'Tis here that Truth is known.
And ever with the Right
Shall thy heirs be found,
Till time shall be no more
And thy work is crown'd.
For Boston, for Boston,
For Thee and Thine alone.


Original Lyrics

For Boston, for Boston,
We sing our proud refrain!
For Boston, for Boston,
'Tis Wisdom's earthly fane
For here, men are men,
And their hearts are true,
And the towers on the Heights
reach to Heav'n's own blue.
For Boston, for Boston,
Till the echoes ring again!
rah rah



For Boston, for Boston,
Thy glory is our own!
For Boston, for Boston,
'Tis here that Truth is known,
And ever with the Right
shall their sons be found,
Till time shall be no more
and thy work is crown'd.
For Boston, for Boston,
For Thee and Thine alone
