Faron Young – Wolverton Mountain lyrics

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

But 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 that mountain
Though Clifton Clovers may take my life

Her tender lips are sweeter than honey...

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

Cause her tender lips are sweeter than honey...

But I don't care about Clifron Clovers
I'm a gonna climb up on his mountain
I'm gonna take the girl I love I don't care about Clifron Clovers
