Oh the [D]summer[G]time is [D]coming

And the [G]tree’s are sweetly [D]blooming,

And the[ G]wild [D]mountain [Bm]thyme,

Grows[G] around the [Em]blooming [G]heather

Will you[ D]go [G]lassie [D]go


And we’ll [G]all go to[D]gether,

To pluck [G]wild [D]mountain [Bm]thyme,

All a[G]round the [Em]blooming [G]heather,

Will you [D]go [G]lassie [D]go.

I will [D]build my [G]love a [D]tower,

By yon [G]pure crystal [D]fountain,

And [G]on it [D]I will [Bm]pile,

All the [G] flowers [Em]on the [G]mountain,

Will you[D] go[G] lassie[D] go


If my [D]true love [G]she were [D]gone,

I would [G]surely find an[D]other,

Where [G]wild [D]mountain [Bm]thyme,

Grows a[G]round the [Em]blooming [G]heather,

Will you[D] go[G] lassie[D] go
