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.
