Honor to Huntington

Honor to Huntington Now that our tasks are done We shall remember the days we have spent Within thine halls and Ee'n now that we must part Loyal in every heart Honor to Hutington We will be true

Amici

Our strong band shall ne’er be broken
formed in Huntington High;
far surpassing wealth unspoken,
sealed by friendship’s tie.

CHORUS:
Huntington High School, now and ever
Deep grave on each heart,
Shall be found unwavering true,
When we from life shall part.
High school life at best is passing,
Gliding swiftly by;
Then let us pledge in word and deed
Our love for Huntington High.
