Southwest High School Song

Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
Thou art strong and true,
Honor to thy name so hallowed
Pledge we now to you.

Southwest! Southwest!
Ever onward
Shall thy colors fly
Orange and Black to all are sacred
Radiant in the sky.

Every son and every daughter
Bears thy hallowed name,
Far above all others always
Thou shall bring us fame.

Southwest! Southwest!
We are faithful
Proud in victory's song,
May thy banner always lead us
On and ever on.
