about

"Wild Mountain Thyme", also known as "Purple Heather" and "Will You Go Lassie, Go", is a folk song, rewritten[1] by Francis McPeake, a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is a variant of a traditional song The Braes of Balquhidder by Robert Tannahill (1774-1810).

'So, I have decided to learn some songs instead of going slowly insane while waiting to mix my album.

lyrics

Oh the summer time has come And the trees are sweetly blooming And the wild mountain thyme Grows around the blooming heather Will ye go lassie go?

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 your pure crystal fountain and on it I will grow all the wild flowers of the mountain Will ye go lassie?

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

And we'll all go together To pluck wild mountain thyme all around the blooming heather Will ye go lassie go?
