When former President Humphries would take the microphone at the Homecoming game, and start the words...you could feel the electricity. There are couple of extra lines in the official version, but this is one we like the best.
When the dark clouds gather on the horizon,
When thunder and lightning pierce the skies,
When fate is but a glare in the eye of a fallen Rattler,
and hope….a lost friend,
When the sinew of the chest grows weary from those hard charging linebackers,
And the muscles in the legs grow tired from those hard charging runningbacks,
You must always remember….the Rattlers will
AND STRIKE AGAIN!!
