Jim, could "rory" be "gory" ?

These chords are a possibility. I haven't listened to this in over forty years, but from memory they might go something like this, (played in G).

The A major chord in the last line of the chorus might be a touch cheesy for some tastes ...

(D7)When the(G) pipes are ringing
And the(Em) kilts are swinging
And your(Am) heart is singing
As you(D7) gaily march along;
You can(G) hear the story
That is(Em) brave and gory
In the(Am) tunes of(D7) glory
Of that(G) old Scots song.

(G)Brave are the(Em) honours we(Am) carry be(D)fore us,
(G)Brave are the(Em) hearts that we(Am) lift in the(D) chorus,
(Bm)Hear them(C)playing,(D) hear them(Em) saying,
(Am)That's the (A)story in the(D7) Tunes of Glory.
