Hark the Sound

by William Starr Myers, 1897

1. Hark the sound of Tar Heel voices
Ringing clear and True
Singing Carolina's praises
Shouting N.C.U.

Hail to the brightest Star of all
Clear its radiance shine
Carolina priceless gem,
Receive all praises thine.

I'm a Tar Heel born I'm a Tar Heel bred
And when I die I'm a Tar Heel dead.
So it's RAH, RAH, Car'lina 'lina
RAH, RAH, Car'lina 'lina
RAH, RAH, Car'lina
RAH! RAH! RAH!

2. 'Neath the oaks the sons true hearted
Homage pay to thee
Time worn walls give back their echo
Hail to U.N.C.

3. Though the storms of life assail us
Still our hearts beat true
Naught can break the friendships formed at
Dear old N.C.U.

Here Comes Carolina

by Russell Aubrey Thompson ’24

Here comes Car'lina lina
Here comes Car'lina lina
We hail from NCU

We've got the team to win it,
We've got the spirit in it,
We wear the colors white and blue.

So it's fight, fight, fight for Carolina
As Davie did in days of old;
As we rally round the Well,
Cheer that Tar Heel team like hell,
For the glory of NCU.

Tar Heels on Hand

by Kay Kyser ’27

Tar Heels on Hand,
To steal the Thunder from the Sky:
Then take our stand,
As every man does right by Blue and White,
We'll give the Tar Heels a Hand,
And cheer them on to do or die (Yeah!)
All of us are for U.N.C.
and you can betcha we're proud to be
the Tar Heels on Hand!

Carolina Loyalty Song

by Joel Carter

1. As Carolina's Sons, We raise
our thankful hearts and voices high
For all sweet things that tongue can praise
are gather'd underneath the Sky
When fame or fortune finds us where
We clasp the hand of friendship true
Her loyal Sons will breathe a prayer
For Carolina and the Blue.

2. For noble conduct on the field
For wisdom nurtured in thy halls
For high ideals and fruitful yield
For friendships made within thy walls
We shall not fail to honor thee
And cherish all the memories dear
That bind our hearts more fervently
To Carolina year by year.

3. When we who sing can sing no more
When classmates, too, are gone at last
We'll meet upon that other shore
To sing the praises of the past
Fair Carolina's fame will tell
Wherever men of honor dwell
Yes Carolina's fame will tell
Wherever men of honor dwell.
