Just finished a show where this was played and I had a feeling that I'd seen lyrics for it somewhere in the past. Was this just my imagination? Regards, John

Unaware of any lyrics for this...

It's a march traitionally played when a Scots regiment is returning to barracks...

Cheers

Now when the pipes are ringing and the kilts are swinging
And your heart is singing as you gaily march along.
You can hear the story that is brave and roary
In the tunes of glory of an old Scots song.
If you're standing near them and you ever hear them
You will want to cheer them as you feel the glory there
Because the rhythm fills you and the drum beat wills you
And the music thrills you of the old BLACK Bear
Brave are the orders we carry before us
Brave are the hearts that will lift in the chorus
Hear them playing, hear them saying
That's the story in the tunes of glory

I was curious, so I went to YouTube to hear what "The Black Bear" sounds like. I've known that tune almost all my life without knowing the name of it. Now I do. Thanks.

It was the theme tune used in the film 'Tunes of Glory'(Alec Guiness & John Mills)so last line in posting by Alison guest very appropriate!
