Frank Howe Lyr/Tune Req: Wild Mountain Thyme (17) Lyr Add: WILL YE GO, LASSIE? 19 Nov 98


This song has several names and sets of lyrics. Here it is as:

WILL YE GO, LASSIE?

Oh, the summer time is comin'
And the trees are sweetly bloomin',
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the purple heather;

Will ye go, lassie, go?
And we'll all go together,
To pluck the wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather;
Will ye go, lassie, go?

I will build my love a bower
By yon pure, crystal fountain,
And it's there I will bring
All the flowers of the mountain;

Will ye go, lassie, go? ...

If my true love she were gone
I would surely find another
To pluck the wild mountain thyme
All around the bloomin' heather

Will ye go, lassie, go? ...

Oh, the autumn-time is comin'
And the leaves will soon be fallin',
And the blossoms o' the summer
Will soon wither on the mountain;

Will ye go, lassie, go? ...
