Alma mater[edit]

Far above Savannah's waters
With its waves of red
Stands our noble Alma Mater
Glorious to view

(Chorus)
Calhoun Falls High, we will honor
Loud, her praises tell
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
Hail, all Hail CF

Honor to the blue and gold
The colors of our school
They're the pride of Calhoun Falls
Hail, all Hail CF

(Chorus)
Calhoun Falls High, we will honor
Loud, her praises tell
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
Hail, all Hail CF
