Alma Mater, truest mother,

Thou hast guided us each day.

Thy protecting love has led us

To the portals of life’s way;

Never shall thy precepts leave us

As we journey from thy hall;

Tender memories will linger

As we heed thine every call.


For our school days soon are over;

In the world we’ll take our place,

And we’ll meet Life’s undertakings

Better now prepared to face;

So we thank thee, Alma Mater,

For our armor wrought with skill,

And when Life’s flame burneth dimly,

Shelby High, we’ll love thee still.
