Alma mater

In 1931, Mrs. Enid Markham, wife of music professor Robert Markham, wrote lyrics that were presented in chapel in November and soon sanctioned as the official school song. The "Good Old Summer Time” tune was rearranged to fit Mrs. Markham’s “Baylor Line” by Baylor Band Director Donald I. Moore.


♫ That Good Old Baylor Line! ♫
That Good Old Baylor Line!
We’ll march forever down the years,
As long as stars shall shine.
We’ll fling our Green and Gold afar
To light the ways of time,
And guide us as we onward go;
That Good Old Baylor Line!
