1 Ever to the right, boys,
Ever to the right!
Give a ready hand and true
To the work you have to do.
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right.

Refrain:
Ever (to the right) boys,
Ever (to the right) boys,
Ever to the right, boys,
Ever to the right.

2 Ever to the right, boys,
Ever to the right!
Never let your parents say,
Why my wishes disobey?
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

Ever to the right!
No known duty try to shun,
Faithful be to every one—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

Ever to the right!
Speak the truth, the right pursue,
Honest be in all you do—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

5 Ever to the right, boys,
Ever to the right!
Time is gold; do what you can,
Make your mark and be a man—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]

6 Ever to the right, boys,
Ever to the right!
Seek the Savior in your youth,
He’s the Life, the Way, the Truth—
Ever to the right,
Ever to the right. [Refrain]
