Regimental March
A Southerly Wind and a Cloudy Sky

"The Hunting Song"
Written By: William Joseph Shayer

** Note: The Regimental quick march "A Southerly Wind and a Cloudy Sky" was also adopted from the East Surrey Regiment by the South Alberta Regiment prior to its amalgamation to form the South Alberta Light Horse."

 

Verse 1:
A southerly wind and a cloudy sky
Proclaims of a hunting morning
Before the sun rises away we'll fly
Away from our drowsy beds scorning

Verse 2:
To horses, brave boys, and away
All over the hills adorning
The face of all nature looks bright and gay
It's a beautiful hunting morning

Verse 3:
Hark, Hark, forward
Ta rah rah, ta rah rah, ta rah
Hark, Hark, forward
Ta rah rah, ta rah rah, ta rah

Armoured Corps March
"My Boy Willie"

MY BOY WILLIE

 

Verse 1:
The ARMOURED CORPS to the fore,
MY BOY WILLIE,
The Armoured Corps, the King or War,
WILLIE is the fighting breed,
Day or night, dark or light,
The foe will know we're there all right,
We'll be fighting in the front to our battle cry,

 

Verse 2:
The ARMOURED CORPS' tanks are there,
MY BOY WILLIE,
With clanking treads, and our steel bare,
Turrets in line, and hull combine,
The grandest warriors of our time,
We'll be fighting in the front to our battle cry,

 

Verse 3:
The ARMOURED CORPS leads the rest,
MY BOY WILLIE,
In war and peace we are the best,
WILLIE'S always in the lead,
Shot or shell, the enemy Hell,
Our charge will let them know damn well,
We are fighting in the front to our battle cry,
