Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Four ladies chain, turn the girl
You rollaway, circle left
Four ladies rollaway, circle left that way
Left allemande and weave the ring
Her tender lips are sweeter than honey
Swing that girl, promenade
Bears and birds tell Clifton Clowers*
If a stranger should wander there


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) pass thru, separate go around two
Hook on the end, make a line of four, move up and back
You pass thru, U-turn back, now
Do the right & left thru, turn the girl and go
All join hands, circle left, go moving 'round the ring
Go left allemande, promenade
*Bears and birds tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should wander there


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*They say don't go on Wolverton Mountain
If you're looking for a wife

Wolverton Mountain
 
 

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
And Wolverton Mountain protects her there
The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should wander there

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
And Wolverton Mountain protects her there
The bears and the birds tell Clifton Clowers
If a stranger should wander there

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 gonna climb up on that mountain
And I'll get the one I love
I don't care about Clifton Clowers
I'm gonna climb up on that mountain

Lyrics by Merle Kilgore and Claude King.
Recorded by Claude King; Dickey Lee; Nat King Cole; Bing Crosby; Nitty Gritty Dirt Band; many others.
