The song you hear the Piedmont Pep Band playing after Highlander touchdowns is the Piedmont Fight song, which dates back to the 1920’s. Many people have wondered what the words are to the song, so we bring them to you here:
(to the tune of “On, Wisconsin”)
We are the Piedmont’s fighting clansmen,
Bold and bonny bunch!
We eat thistles for our breakfast,
Granite for our lunch, Munch, munch, munch …
We are Piedmont’s fighting clansmen,
Come from Highlands brown …
So fight, Piedmont,
Fight till every foe is down!
