Die Jägerbraut (Und zieh'n zum breiten Tore...)

Hi all.
Please can you help me find out the title and the lyrics of this song.
It's entitled as "Grenadiere" but I think this is not it's title or at least isn't full title.

The title is "Die Jägerbraut" (Marsch der Goslarschen Jäger), composed around 1935 by Richard Hewers (1883-1962), who was the bandmaster in III (Jäger-)Bataillon des Infanterie-Regiments 17 in Goslar. The lyrics were probably written by Karl Reinecke-Altenau (1885-1943), painter and poet (source for the lyricist-claim: Kai Gurski, Schlägel, Eisen und Hakenkreuz - Das Thema Bergbau im Werk des Malers Karl Reinecke-Altenau). It was recorded by Luftwaffenmusikkorps 2 (Bundeswehr), and some other bands.
