Will ye go lassie go

words & music by Francis McPeake

 

Oh the summertime is coming
and the trees are sweetly blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme
all around the blooming heather,
Will you go lassie, go?

 

Chorus:
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
near the pure crystal fountain,
And on it I will pile
all the flowers of the mountain
Will you go lassie, go?

 

Chorus

 

If my true love she were gone,
I would surely find another
Where the wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather,
Will you go lassie, go?

 

Chorus(x2)
