Old Washington Song

Words and Melody by C.L. Atwater Harmonized by W. Russell McMenamin

By the gleaming blue Chester River On the Maryland Eastern Shore Stands a glorious Alma Mater Whose name we’ll ever adore “Tis a name that shone high in glory When our country, her freedom won And our College alone was the first one to own To the Fair name of Washington


So Washington, old Washington, Our Washington we do adore We will fight for her honor As her sons have before

So Washington, old Washington Our Washington forever more She’s our dear Alma Mater On the old Eastern Shore

Just as Washington was the foremost Both in honor and peace and war So our College is foremost ever To honor the name that he bore And where-e’r her children may wander She can trust ev’ry loyal son For we’ll bring her no shame But be true to her name To the fair name of Washington

Repeat Chorus
