Oh, the summer time is coming,
And the trees are sweetly blooming;
And the wild mountain thyme,
Grows around the blooming heather.
Will you go, lassie, go?

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

I will build my love a tower,
By yon pure crystal fountain;
And on it I will pile,
All the flowers of the mountain.
Will you go, lassie, go?

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

If my true love she were gone,
I would surely find another;
To pluck wild mountain thyme,
All around the blooming heather.
Will you go, lassie, go?

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

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

"A record company is capitalising on a blunder by Rod Stewart's label by releasing a version of the 1940's Irish folk song the British Star mistakenly claimed he had written. Stewart's version of the song Purple Heather was incorrectly credited to him on his WEA album Spanner In The Works. And now a version from 1985 by the real writer's son, Jimmy McPeake [b.1936] and his group Barnbrack is being released by Ireland's Outlet Records. McPeake's father Frankie wrote the song in 1947 calling it Will Ye Go Lassie Go."
