Wild Mountain Thyme

 

Oh the summertime is coming, and the trees are sweetly blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme grows around the purple heather.
 

Refrain:   Will you go, Lassie go?

                And we’ll all go together
                To pluck wild mountain thyme
                All around the blooming heather

                Will you go, Lassie go?
 

I will build my love a tower by yon crystal flowing fountain,
And on it I will pile all the flowers of the mountain.
 

If my true love will not go I can surely find another,
Where the wild mountain thyme grows around the purple heather.

 

I will build my love a shelter on yon high mountain green,
And my love shall be the fairest that the summer sun has seen.
