Fight Songs

  1. Bow Down to Washington

    “Bow Down to Washington” is the official fight song of the Washington Huskies. It was written in 1915 by Lester J. Wilson during a competition that was requesting a new song for the University. The song is usually performed by the Huskies marching band and was first used at the Washington-California football game on November 6, 1915, where the Huskies earned a 72-0 home victory.

  2. UW Alma Mater

    Bow Down to Washington,
    Bow Down to Washington.
    Mighty are the men who wear the Purple and the Gold,
    Joyfully we welcome them within the Victor’s fold.
    We will carve our name in the Hall of Fame,
    To preserve the memory of our Devotion.

    Chorus
    So, heaven help the foes of Washington,
    They’re trembling at the feet of mighty Washington.
    Our boys are there with bells,
    Their fighting blood excells,
    It’s harder to push them over the lines than pass the Dardanelles.
    So Victory’s the cry of Washington
    Our leather lungs together with a Rah! Rah! Rah!
    And o’er the land, the loyal band
    Will sing the glory of Washington forever!
