Subject: RE: Wild Mountain Thyme - Why doesn't it rhyme
Big Tim, The Tannahill Weaver's sing the standard (see Norrie Buchan's 101 Scottisg Songs) first part of the tune which most people know. It's the second part where they fudge the octave jump that is different slightly. Also their pronunciation is comletely haywire.
