1970 Senior Class Song

Farewell to passing hours of grief and joy,
Of effort, gain, and happiness combined.
We leave to search a new and separate life,
And may our hearts forever more entwine.
Our eyes have seen a thousand different days,
Our minds have memorized each day we've lived.
And new we raise a cup of love to those
Who gave us everything they had to give.

Words and Music by Ella Davis and Ray Jones


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
