Wild Mountain Thyme


Oh, the summer time is coming,


And the trees all are blooming,


And the wild mountain thyme


Grows around the blooming heather.

 

Chorus:

Will you go, lassie, will you go?

And we'll all go together


To pull wild mountain thyme


All around the blooming heather,

Will you go, lassie, go?

 

I will build my love a bower


By yon clear and crystal fountain,


And all around the bower,


I'll pile flowers from the mountain.

Chorus

If my true love, she won't have me,


I will surely find another


To pull wild mountain thyme


All around the blooming heather.

Chorus
