Traditional song arranged by Andy Gordon and Syd Green

lyrics

Summertime is coming
the trees are sweetly blooming
wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather
will you go Patye, go?

and we’ll all go together
where the wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather

I’ll build my love a bower
near yon pure crystal fountain
and on it I will pile
all the flowers from the mountains
will you go Patye, go?

and we’ll all go together
where the wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather

If my true love she were gone
I would surely find another
I would sail across the ocean
till I found the blooming heather
will you go Patye, go?

and we’ll all go together
where the wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather

A silence had descended
‘till White started whistling
“Marlbrooke gone to war”
and you all sang along
will you go Patye, go

and we’ll all go together
where the wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather
will you go Patye, go?
