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.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/conway-twitty-wolverton-mountain-lyrics.html ]
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...
