NNHS Class of 64 Senior Class Song


It's time to leave you, Newport High,
Time that we must part.
It's time to leave your sacred walls, but they'll dwell within our hearts.
We know with every ending, a beginning there will be.
And we'll owe to you, dear Newport High, our support and loyalty.

The past is filled with memories;
Future not too clear.
Anticipation reigns supreme as we close our senior year.
We leave you, Newport, for a life in every walk and way,
And we'll always hold your honor high, throughout each coming day.

Words and Music by Charlie Snead


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
