Traditions Fight Song



Northwestern’s fight song is “Ride, Rangers, Ride!” It’s tradition to stand, clap and sing to show our Ranger Pride whenever this song is played. The song was written by 1940 Northwestern graduate Floyd “Spud” McClain for a 1949 contest organized by the Chi Beta Nu music fraternity.

Ride, ride, ride, Rangers ride,

And we will win this game tonight. 

Fight, fight, fight, Rangers fight,

And everything will be all right.

Score, score, score, Rangers score,

And we will win just like before.

More, more, more, Rangers more.

You gotta ride and fight some more.

Ride, ride, ride, ride, ride.

Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight.

Ride, ride, ride, Rangers ride,

And we will win this game tonight.

Fight, fight, fight, Rangers fight.

You gotta ride’em hard and ride’em far

And ride, ride, ride, and fight, fight, fight.
