Program Notes

Haney commented on the creation of the song:

The Noble Men of Kyle was written in 1972 and the first time they played it they didn't like it so I went back to the drawing board and I rewrote the first string [sic]. They seemed to like it then and now they play it I guess, six, seven or eight times a game.

- Program Note from KBTX-TV

The march derives its name from the Texas A&M University football stadium in College Station, Kyle Field, named after Edwin Jackson Kyle, who served as Texas A&M's dean of agriculture and athletic council president and who donated the land for the stadium in 1904. The Texas A&M Aggie Band is still known as the Men of Kyle.
