How did this song come to be associated with QPR? 08:52 - May 28 with 6082 viewsN12Hoop

When I'm not singing the Bobby Zamora song, this is the other song stuck in my head. How did it come to get adopted as a QPR song?

From Wikipedia:
Released in 1967 this song has been adopted by the supporters of football clubs such as Scunthorpe United, Stockport County, Queens Park Rangers, Aston Villa, Sheffield Wednesday and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The song is played before matches on the loudspeaker system so that the fans can sing along to the chorus with the lyrics adapted to include a reference to their club (e.g., 'Hi Ho Queens Park Rangers'. 'Hi Ho Aston Villa', 'Hi Ho Sheffield Wednesday' or 'Hi Ho, Wolverhampton'

Any specific Rangers connection?

from Yahoo answers
The term, "Hi-ho Silver, and away!" was used in an old (black & white) television series called, "The Lone Ranger" (by The Ranger himself). It was his call to his horse Silver to get going, and he said it (shouted it) as he left.

I read Ronnie Woods autobiography and he mentions the song in there,but I can't remember the reasons behind him writing the song now.It does fit queens park rangers better than it does Wolverhampton though.

When the song was originally in the charts, (1968) JB performed it on ToTP and gave a big "QPR!" shout out at the beginning. We were a very cool club to be associated with then — league cup win, exciting young team, Rodney's attitude etc. It's possible that was part of the reason we adopted it.
