(Medium country shuffle; chorus near-spoken a la Cash's "how high the river")
There's a team that plays in the West
Those who know say they're 'mong the best
But those who decide what will be
Will try and keep the crown from Boise
(chorus) How high the Broncos?
Number 12 and risin'
Whither go the Broncos?
To the top of the hill
What say the Broncos?
"Bring it when you're ready"
How 'ya know they're Broncos?
Because they always will.
(chorus remains the same except in second verse replace with "number 5", "number 4" and then "number 1")
The rich do not go to their school
The working man's kin are the rule
Their work puts the books in their hands
And the pride in the field and the stands. (chorus)
Some had said that they weren't of age
When they first appeared on the stage
But they did just what they had to do
With the guts of the boys from the blue.(chorus)
If there's a lesson for all to take home
It's that outcomes aren't written in stone.
When they say you'll never be great
Remember that team Boise State.(chorus to fade)
