On our county's western border,
Reared against the sky,
Proudly stands our Alma Mater
As the years roll by.
High School days are swiftly passing.
Soon our race is won,
While we live, we'll ever cherish,
Friendships here begun.
Fare-thee-well, West Limestone High School,
Never will there stand,
A class more faithful to their high school,
Than this loyal band.
Forward ever be our watchword,
Conquer and prevail,
Hail to thee, our Alma Mater
West Limestone, all hail.
