War Eagle (Fight Song)
Auburn's battle cry, not Auburn's nickname. There are several legends concerning the origin of the War Eagle battle cry, dating back to 1864 and the Civil War at the Battle of the Wilderness in Virginia.
War… Eagle, Fly Down the Field. Ever to Conquer, Never to Yield.
War… Eagle, Fearless and True. Fight on, You Orange and Blue.
Go! Go! Go!
On to Vic'try, Strike up the Band,
Give 'Em Hell, Give 'Em Hell.
Stand up and Yell, Hey! War … Eagle, win for Auburn,
Power of Dixie Land!
