NNHS Class of 63 Senior Class Song


We look to thee dear Newport High
As we sojourn into the world.
We hold a sacred place for you.
You'll always fill our hearts.

We'll ne'er forget the happy time spent
As we approach commencement day
With this end, a new beginning.
We leave thee now, farewell.

Words by Kathleen Pilgrim;  Music by Linda Coates

Graduation Day

- Joe Sherman / Noel Sherman, 1956

(Beach Boys version recorded 05/05/65)

There's a time a for joy
A time for tears
A time we'll treasure through the years
We'll remember always
Graduation day

At the senior prom
We danced 'til three
And there you gave your heart to me
We'll remember always
Graduation day

Though we leave in sorrow
All the joys we've known
We can face tomorrow
Knowing we'll never walk alone
When the ivy walls
Are far behind
No matter where our paths may wind
We'll remember always
Graduation day
We'll remember always
Graduation day
