Sydney Swans Club Song
Until 1961, the Club Song was an adaptation of "Spring time in the Rockies" by American country star Gene Autry.
There was a sense within the Club that we needed a more robust song. A song that could provide this was identified as the Notre Dame Victory March. This song had been written in 1905 by alumni of Norte Dame, the Shea brothers.
After a protracted process involving the University and various musical houses, the Club was granted copyright in March 1961 and became our much loved Club Song 'Cheer Cheer the Red and the White'.
