It's the Green High School ALMA MATER song!

Hi, I'm Meli from RetiredTractors.com and I'm your host for The Green History Detectives Episode 9

In a city of Ohio
Stands our high school dear
Midst the homes of friends and neighbors
Our lives center here.
So we praise the name, O Green High
Keep you standards high
Lift Your voices loud and loyal
to the very sky.

You may sing that to the tune of "Annie Lisle" with the guitar and/or banjo below:

Did you know:
"Annie Lisle" is the name of an 1857 ballad by Boston, Massachusetts songwriter H. S. Thompson first published by Moulton & Clark of Newburyport, Massachusetts, and later by Oliver Ditson & Co.. It is about the death of a young maiden, by what some have speculated to be tuberculosis, although the lyric does not explicitly mention tuberculosis, or "consumption" as it was called then. The song might have slipped into obscurity had the tune not been adopted by countless colleges, universities, and high schools worldwide as their respective alma mater songs.
The lyrics are included below:
Down where the waving willows
’Neath the sunbeams smile,
Shadow’d o’er the murm’ring waters
Dwelt sweet Annie Lisle;

Pure as the forest lily,
Never tho’t of guile
Had its home within the bosom
Of sweet Annie Lisle.

Wave willows, murmur waters,
Golden sunbeams, smile!
Earthly music cannot waken
Lovely Annie Lisle.

Sweet came the hallow’d chiming
Of the Sabbath bell,
Borne on the morning breezes
Down the woody dell.

On a bed of pain and anguish
Lay dear Annie Lisle,
Chang’d were the lovely features,
Gone the happy smile.

Raise me in your arms, O Mother;
Let me once more look
On the green and waving willows
And the flowing brook.

Hark! the sound of angel music
From the choirs above!
Dearest mother, I am going;
Surely God is love.
