Conway Twitty Wolverton Mountain  lyrics

 

They say don't go on Wolverton Mountain 

If you're looking for a wife 

'Cause old Clifton Clowers has a swingin' daughter 

And he's mighty handy with the gun and the knife. 

 

Don't you know her lips are sweeter than honey 

And Wolverton mountain protects her there 

All them bears, they'd tell old Clowers 

If a stranger should enter there. 

 

All of my dreams are up on that 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. 

 

He knows her lips are sweeter than honey 

And Clifton Clowers protects her there 

All them bears they'd tell old Clowers 

If a stranger should enter there. 

 

I'm going up on Wolverton Mountain 

It's much too lonesome down here below 

It's just not right for him to hide his daughter 

From me because, just because I love her so.

 

Hey, I don't care about Clifton Clowers 

I'm gonna climb up on that mountain 

I'm gonna take the girl I love 

I don't care about Clifton Clowers

 

Never tried that old romance bit

But I think I'm gonna chance it

And I'm gonna take the girl I love..
