Wild Mountain Thyme

Traditional

Oh the summer time is coming,
And the trees are sweetly blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.
Will you go, lassie, go.

Chorus:
And we’ll all go together,
To pull wild mountain thyme,
Out around the blooming heather,
Will you go, lassie, go.

I will build my love a bower,
By yon clear & crystal fountain
And on it I will pile
All the flowers of the mountain.
Will you go, lassie, go.

Chorus

If my true love were to leave me
I can surely find no other,
To pull wild mountain thyme
From around the blooming heather.
Will you go, lassie, go.

Chorus

I will build my love a shelter,
On yon high mountain green,
And my love shall be the fairest,
This mountain has ever seen.
Will you go, lassie, go.
