Description
My version of a Francis McPeake classic. I usually sing this at the end of a kitchen session or performance with everyone joining in on the chorus.

Lyrics
Oh the summertime is coming
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

Chorus
And we'll all go together
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather
Will ye go, Lassie go?

I will build my love a tower
Near yon' pure crystal fountain
And on it I will build
All the flowers of the mountain
Will ye go, Lassie go?

Chorus

I will range the mountains o'er
And the deep lynns sa' drearie
And return wi' ma spoils
Ta' the bower o' ma dearie
Will ye go, Lassie go?

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

Chorus

Terrific
You sure have a knack for classic folk tunes.
Especially with that accent, it really brings out that flavor.

It kind of make me think that your music would of been
nice for a movie like "Far and Away" with Tom Cruise.

Thanks

I like this
I've a soft spot for items like this. Guess it's because 3 of
my grandparents are Irish. Well done.
