1956 Class Song

Words by JoAnne Beecroft, Sally MacFarland, and Harold Harpine

Tune: "Autumn Leaves", Music by Joseph Kosma
 

 Our high school days have now been ended,
Within these walls we bid adieu,
To each of you we leave this message,
We’ve loved each day of work and play.


As we leave these halls, dear Newport High,
We’ll always hold your memories nigh,
As we proudly sing this song together,
We pray our hopes will be fulfilled.


As we leave these halls, dear Newport High,
We’ll always hold your memories nigh,
As we proudly sing this song together,
We pray our hopes will be fulfilled.
We pray our hopes will be fulfilled.
