Will you[G] go[C] lassie[G] go, and we'll[C] all go to[G]gether,
To pluck[C] wild mountain[Em] thyme, all a[C]round the [Am]blooming[C] heather,
Will you[G] go[C] lassie[G] go.

I will build my love a tower, by yon crystal fountain,
And on it I will pile, all the wild flowers of the mountain,
Will you go ,,,,,,

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