Across the Field!

Across the Field” is Ohio State University’s football fight song. It was composed by William Doughtery, a student at OSU, in 1915. The words to “Carmen Ohio” were  written by Fred Cornell, a cheerleader at OSU, in 1902. The tune is a hymn tune called MADRID – “Come Christians, Join to Sing” is the hymn most often sung to that tune. Both tunes are in the condensed score for “College Songs for School Bands” from Hal Leonard, which can also be used for piano (but, words are not included). Songs from other colleges are included in this book of sheet music too! Another standard OSU song, “Hang On, Sloopy” is available at
