Hank Williams Jr. – Wolverton Mountain lyrics

Now they say don't go on Wolverton Mountain if you're looking for a wife

Cause Clifton Clovers has got a pretty young daughter

And 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 Clovers if a stranger should wander there

All of my dreams are on Wolverton Mountain I want his daughter for my wife

I'll take my chances and I'll climb his mountain

Though Clifton Clovers he may take my life

Her tender lips...

I'm goin' up on Wolverton Mountain cause it's too lonesome down here below

It's just ain't right to hide his daughter from the one that loves her so

Her tender lips...

I don't care about Clifton Clovers I'm gonna climb up on that mountain

I wanna just the one I love I don't care about Clifron Clovers

I'm gonna climb up on that mountain
