  • Song Lyrics:
    They say don't go on Wolverton Mountain
    If you're looking for a wife
    'Cause Clifton Clowers has a pretty young daughter
    He's mighty handy with a gun and a knife

    Her tender lips are sweeter than honey
    And Wolverton Mountain protects her there
    The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clowers
    If a stranger should enter there

    All of my dreams are on Wolverton Mountain
    I want his daughter for my wife
    I'll take my chances and climb that mountain
    Though Clifton Clowers; he might take my life

    Her tender lips are sweeter than honey...

    I'm going up on Wolverton Mountain
    It's too lonesome down here below
    It's just not right to hide his daughter
    From the one who loves her so

    Her tender lips are sweeter than honey...

    But I don't care about Clifton Clowers
    I'm gonna climb up on his mountain
    I'm gonna take the girl I love
    I don't care about Clifton Clowers
    I'm a gonna climb up on that mountain
    And I'll get the one I love
    (I B Emerson)
