As I go traveling down life’s highway,

Whatever course my fortunes may foretell,

I shall not go alone on my way,

or thou shalt always be with me Rydell.

When I seek rest from worldly matters,

In place or in hovel I may dwell,

and tho´ my bed be silk or taters,

my dreams shall always be of thee, Rydell.

Though all the years, Rydell,

and tears, Rydell,

we give the cheers Rydell for thee,

Through ev´rything, Rydell,

We cling, Rydell,

And sing, Rydell, to thee!
