Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Wild Mountain Thyme--Variation
Here are first and second verses to go with the final one posted above, as I remember them:

Oh the summer is in prime,
With the flowers richly blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme,
All the moorlands are perfuming,
Where the deer and the roe,
Lightly bound and go together,
Sport the long summer days,
All around the blooming heather.
Will you go, lassie, go.

I will twine me about,
By the clear crystal fountain,
And I'll cover it all,
With the flowers of the mountain,
I will range through the wilds,
And the deep glen so dreary,
And return with my spoils,
To the bower of my dearie.

CHORUS Will you go,lassie, go,
And we'll all go together,
To pull wild mountain thyme,
All around the blooming heather,
Will you go, lassie,go.
