From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dear Old Nebraska U (also commonly referred to as There Is No Place Like Nebraska) is a fight song of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln often played at football games by the University of Nebraska Cornhusker Marching Band. There are three other fight songs, Hail Varsity, March of the Cornhuskers and The Cornhusker (Come a Runnin' Boys).[1]


There is no place like Nebraska,
Dear old Nebraska U.
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest,
Of any old school that I knew.
There is no place like Nebraska,
Where they're all true blue.
We'll all stick together,
In all kinds of weather,
For dear old Nebraska U.[2]


In Nebraska, the lyrics and music are attributed to Harry Pecha, a 1924 Nebraska graduate.[2] However, other schools and locales across the United States - including the University of Chicago, the University of Florida, and the Toledo, Ohio public school system - sing similar tunes, often with similar lyrics.
