Wild Mountain Thyme

Traditional Scottish song generally credited to Francis McPeake and the poet Robert Tanahill arranged by Charlie Roth 2012

O the summer time is comin’
and the trees are sweetly blooming
and wild mountain thyme
all among the blooming heather.
Would ye go, lassie, go?

Chorus
And we’ll all go together,
to pull wild mountain thyme,
All around the blooming heather.
Would ye go, lassie, go?

I will build my love a bower,
near yon clear crystal fountain,
And up on it I will pile,
all the flowers of the mountain.
Would ye go, lassie, go?

If my true love would be gone,
I would surely find no other,
to pull wild mountain thyme,
all around the blooming heather.
Would ye go, lassie, go?
