This happens to be one of the simpler ones, so you may find you can work it out by ear without too much struggle. It uses the I and IV chords (in the key of D, D & G; in the key of G, G & C; in the key of C, C & F; etc.). Here it is in D:
          D      G       D              
Oh, the summer time is coming,
G D
And the trees are sweetly blooming,
G D
And the wild mountain thyme
G G
grows around the blooming heather.
D G D
Will you go, lassie, go?

And we'll all go together
G D

Lyrics by heart (sorry). Chords for tune in G. I play it with capo on the second fret, i.e. in A.

Now the [G]summer [D]time is [C]coming[G]
And the [C}flowers are sweetly [G]blooming
And the [C]wild [D]mountain [Em]thyme
Grows [C]around the [(Am)]blooming [C]heather
Will ye [G]go, [C]lassie, [G]go

And we'll [C]all go to[G]gether
To pluck [C]wild [D]mountain [Em]thyme
All [C]around the [(Am)]blooming [C]heather
Will ye [G]go, [C]lassie, [G]go

Hope that helps.

BTW - as far as I know 'thyme' means something like virginity or in general "innocence", i.e. not being f... (oh, no, not with this beautiful song). So plucking thyme or stealing (away) thyme should mean... (NO!).

"I will build my love a tower" - fnarr, fnarr...

Any additional information or correction?

I always thought that the reference was simply to the herb thyme.

thyme: any of the several herbs or small shrubs of the mint family having aromatic leaves, especially a garden herb, whose dried leaves and flowering tops are used as seasoning.

And I beleive it is, I will build my love a bower, as in a shelter of leafy branches, a summerhouse or arbor.

No.. this song is about losing one's innocence. Joerg is quite right... except that the word is bower and not tower. The word "Thyme" has been used before in the past in songs to mean this... one shouldn't read poetry or song lyrics too literally. Look at the thread about "There's another train, there always is".. we all know its nothing to do with trains at all.

From: Quincy
Date: 11 Oct 00 - 08:30 AM

The meaning is a little more clearly explained in this song.

Come all ye maidens young and fair
And you that are blooming in your prime
Always beware and keep your garden fair
Let no man steal away your thyme

CHORUS

For thyme it is a precious thing
And thyme brings all things to my mind
Thyme with all its flavours, along with all its joys
Thyme, brings all things to my mind

Once I had a bunch of thyme
I thought it never would decay
Then came a lusty sailor
Who chanced to pass my way
And stole my bunch of thyme away

CHORUS

A rose that never would decay
He gave it to me to keep me reminded
Of when he stole my thyme away

CHORUS

Come all ye maidens young and fair
And you that are blooming in your prime
Always beware and keep your garden fair
Let no man steal away your thyme


Still like to think of it as "1979" says.....much more decent!!

I suspect that one or two people may be reading a little more into this song than is actually there!  Unsurprisingly, it's been discussed here quite a bit in the past, and its authorship and ancestry examined; I put links to various related threads and DT entries on  Wild Mountain Thyme--Variation  some months back.  

The Bunch of Thyme is a very different matter, of course, but then, it's a different song.  Sometimes, "thyme" just means thyme.

So if thyme is virginity, what are parsley, sage and rosemary? — and is the hidden meaning of rosemary to be read into the Boar's Head Carol, too, and if so, what is bay?

Mostly, they are what they appear to be: useful culinary herbs.  Thyme and rue do often have symbolic meanings (as does "broom") but by no means always.  I think it was Lucy Broadwood who theorized a supernatural explanation of the "parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme" refrain, but there is little evidence to support her hypothesis, which is not taken very seriously nowadays.

As far as I know these herbs (at least rosemary and thyme) were formerly used - or said to be useful - for contraception and/or abortion purposes. Hence those allusions in old songs where it wasn't allowed to call things by their name. But I know very few of this and I would really appreciate learning more.

When I first heard "Wild Mountain Thyme" I thought the word was "town". I know "tower" from a songbook. "Bower" is new to me.

Something in one of the Hymn threads reminded me that the US Catholic hymnal Gather II has two hymns in it set to (fairly different renditions of) Wild Mountain Thyme. One is a Magnificat, which I really liked, and the other is an Iona Community Christmas song which I was less thrilled with (but not unthrilled).

Subject: Lyr Add: THE BRAES OF BALGUITTER
From: Bernard
Date: 14 Oct 00 - 10:41 AM

Francis McPeake set some of the words of Robert Tannahill's poem 'The Braes of Balguitter' to a tune, and 'Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go?' was born (aka 'The Wild Mountain Thyme').

I sing some of the original poem, and it is significantly different:

1. Where the deer and the rae,
Lightly bounding together,
Sport the lang summer day
Mang the braes o' Balguitter

Chorus: Will ye go, lassie, go?
And we'll all go together to pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather,
Will ye go, lassie, go?

2. I will twine my love a bower
By yon cool, clear, crystal fountain,
And I'll pile on the tower
All the flowers o' the mountain

3. Now the summer's in its prime
And the trees sae sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
O'er the moorlands is perfuming

4. If your true-love, she won't come,
Then you'll surely find another
To pluck wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather

5. While the rude and wintry wind
Idly raves round our dwelling,
And the roar o' the lin
O'er the night breeze is telling

6. I will roam the mountains wild,
Mang the glens sae deep and dreary,
And return with ma spoils
Tae the bower o' ma deary.

7. To our dear native scenes
Let us journey together,
Where glad innocence reigns
Mang the braes o' Balguitter

Surprise, surprise, this is yet another song to be found on my one and only album...

It's too big, even as an MP3, to put on my website (4.5Mb), but I could have a go at resampling it as an 8 bit mono 22KHz, and see if that's smaller. Anyone interested?

Hi GaryT - You might be interested in my post on the "Lookin' for lyrics" thread here. If I ever figure out the best way to post chords above the lyrics using HTML, I'll name a thread so we can find it again.

One problem seems to be the way leading spaces are ignored ----use dashes, ...dots, or ___underscores instead.

As Courier is a non-proportional font, it will make a big difference. The daft thing is, the text window for posting shows everything in Courier!

To insert Courier, use:

{FONT FACE="Courier New"}Put text here{/FONT}

but change the curly brackets for pointy ones!!
Don't forget, as I often do(!) to put linebreaks in! {BR}

Thank you, Mary and Bernard. I have generally been successful in getting things to line up and stay lined up by using "left arrow, pre, right arrow" before and "left arrow, /pre, right arrow" after the whole body of text while using line breaks for each line. For reasons beyond my ken, most of the lines in my attempt above seemed to get various amounts of space added from the left margin. I have tried it again, and took the precaution of sending it in a PM to myself to verify it came out right. (Sorry, Bernard, but both of your attempts have some misalignments in them, at least in terms of what I was trying to post.) So here it is again:

Bernard,

I enjoyed you version a lot, especially since it has all the words of the poem, which I didn't know about before, but makes much more sense than the song as I have known (and loved) for all these years.

The file came up as a wav., not as an MP3, which, while implicit in what you said in retrospect, you didn't actually say, and I was a bit suprised when I got screen message that I was downloading a wav.--

Also, the sound is a bit rough around the edges--might have been better not to make it so small, maybe would be better left as an MP3--Anyway, for some reason, folk MP3's tend to be bigger than others--I downloaded something the other day that was nearly 9mb--and it was just voice and harp--

When our Daughter was married aboard the Katahdin in the middle of beautiful Moosehead Lake in Greenville, Maine - where they had both spent a lot of time in the course of their work as Wildlife Biologists - It was my privilege to pipe her down the isle - or more properly the deck - to "Wild Mountain Thyme" on my tin whistle.

Some time ago a kind 'Catter explained to me the mysterious computer code incantations requisite for posting a picture in here, but can't seem to find the formula at the moment... so give this a try:

   For most of her childhood, and to this day, I fondly refer to our Daughter as "The Wylde One" - and for good reason.

   Now she and her little 2 1/2 year old Daughter, who shows every indication of being just as precocious, spontanious and "Wylde" as her Mom, bay at the full moon together when it rises on a clear night.
