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
