Wolverton Mountain
Nat 'King' Cole


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 birds tell Clifton Clowers
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 climb that mountain
Though Clifton Clowers he may take my life:

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:

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 don't care about Clifton Clowers I'm gonna find the one I love.

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