Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain across the ring now
Chain those ladies back home again
Join those hands, circle left, keep moving around now
Left allemande then weave that ring
*They say don't go up on Wolverton Mountain
Dosado the girl right there and promenade
**Old Clifton Flowers has a pretty young daughter
He's mighty handy with a gun and a knife


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

1 & 3 promenade halfway around now
2 & 4 go right & left thru and turn I say
Square thru 4 hands around now
Dosado and eight chain 4 while you're that way
Her tender lips are sweeter than honey
Swing the corner girl right there and promenade
The bears and birds tell Clifton Flowers
If a stranger should wander there

Right back home and there we'll stay

Wolverton Mountain Lyrics ID: 698

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.

Tribute song for Claude King:

Wolverton Mountain Man (Larry W Jones 03/20/2013) (song#6679)

Well, I was just a young lad going with the flow
When I first heard Claude King sing on the radio
I was at a soda fountain in Louisian
Listnin' 'bout a big bad Wolverton Mountain man

Now, old man Clowers made good hard liquor brandy
With a gun and a knife he was mighty handy
He had a pretty young daughter with raven hair
But Wolverton bears and birds protected her there

(instrumental)

Now I'm an older man and time goes marching on
And it was in March when I heard Claude King was gone
I wonder if he ever kissed Clifton's daughter's sweet lips
Or if he married that girl on one of his trips

I know Claude King climbed up on Wolverton Mountain
Cause all of his dreams were with that young girl he loved
He took his chances up on Wolverton Mountain
It was too lonesome down below than up above

Well, I was just a young lad going with the flow
When I first heard Claude King sing on the radio
Up on that Wolverton Mountain he loved her so
