    Wild Mountain Thyme, also known as Purple Heather and Will You Go Lassie, Go, is a folk song, rewritten[1] by Francis McPeake, a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is a variant of a traditional song The Braes of Balquhidder by Robert Tannahill (1774-1810).
    My music can be found on

    The McPeake family are Belfast’s foremost traditional music family.
    Frank McPeake, the patriarch of the family, was born in 1885, leaving school at 13 to become a linen worker, and began his career as a traditional musician after a visit to Belfast by the blind Galway harpist John O’Reilly.

    O’Reilly stayed in Belfast for six weeks to teach McPeake the uilleann pipes, the Irish form of the bagpipes. From this beginning Frank McPeake became a famed pipe player throughout Ireland and the world, performing at the pan-Celtic expo in Brussels in 1911. McPeake allegedly put away his pipes, however, after the death of his daughter and wife within a year of each other.
    Frank McPeake was persuaded to resume playing by the emergence of his son Francis as an equally talented pipe player. He and his father performed together in the Royal Albert Hall in 1956 and with James, a harpist, formed The McPeakes.
    Their unique combination of close harmony singing accompanied by pipes and harp was revolutionary in, and had a great impact on, Irish music, paving the way for groups such as Planxty and Horslips in the 1970s. The McPeakes still tour the world with younger members of the family, and Francis Jr was closely involved in the inception of the Clonard Traditional Music School.

  • 2631. Wild Mountain Thyme - Old Fokeys live at Fawkner Park

    2:46

    Another song from our concert at the South Yarra Senior Centre in Fawkner Park.

    This will be my last upload for a few days as I will be in the Philippines taking part in some charity concerts with the Hong Kong Welsh Male choir.

    This song, also known as Will You Go Lassie, Go, was first recorded by Northern Irish singer, Francis McPeake, in 1957 for the BBC series As I Roved Out. The tune is a very old traditional Scottish air but McPeake claimed to have written the words. Whether or not this is true, and there has been some debate about it, the lyrics are closely based on an earlier song called The Braes of Balquidder by Robert Tannahill (1774-1810)
    .
    The song has been recorded by many artists since Francis McPeake, including Sandy Paton (1959), Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Jean Redpath, The Chieftains, The Irish Rovers, Judy Collins(1961), The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, Luke Kelly, Paul Clayton (1964), The Byrds, The Corries, and James Taylor (1989)

    I first uploaded this song to YouTube in 2007:

    Lyrics and chords:
    ............. E .......... A ......... E
    Oh the summer time is coming
    ................ A .......................... E
    And the trees are sweetly blooming
    .............. A ...... B7.......... E
    And the wild mountain thyme
    .......................... ...... A
    Grows around the blooming heather.
    ............. E .... A....... E
    Will you go, lassie, go?
    ............................... A .. B7.. E
    And we'll all go together
    ............... A ...... B7 ......... E
    To pluck wild mountain thyme
    ....... A ............ F#m......... A
    All around the blooming heather.
    .............. E ... A ....... E
    Will you go, lassie, go?

    I will build my love a tower
    Near yon pure crystal fountain
    And on it I will pile
    All the flowers of the mountain.

    If my true love she were gone,
    I would surely find another
    Where wild mountain thyme
    Grows around the blooming heather.

    Lyrics and chords of many of my songs are no longer available, as my website has expired. I am currently posting lyrics to the information panels on all my videos and those that are too long to post in full will be found here:

  • In The Lee Of Mount Galena

    5:13

    You who in one life were Mary Derhousoff,
    Then later Mary Soroka,
    And finally Mary Favell,
    You who in this life were my mother:
    In the days after you died I re-wrote this old song
    To tailor it a little more to the local countryside
    And sang it onto a video
    Knowing one day you would see it.
    I hope you remember me and your other children,
    Your grandchildren
    And your great and great-great grandchildren,
    And I hope you have some idea how much you are loved.
    Wherever you go, you are loved and remembered here
    In Grand Forks,
    Home of borscht and sunshine,
    Here
    In the lee of Mount Galena.

    -Your loving son, Dave.



    (I wrote my own lyrics to a tune I've always loved. I make no claim to copyright. Wild Mountain Thyme was, as far as I know, written by Francis McPeake, based on an old Scottish song by Robert Tannahill, a contemporary of Robert Burns. I believe the copyright is still held by Francis McPeake.)

It was written by the Northern Irish singer Francis McPeake, who first recorded it for the BBC series As I Roved Out in 1957. As he had already taught it to others by this point it must have been written some time prior to 1957.
