Yes, I'm the girl
From Wolverton Mountain
I wish someone would
Make me their wife

I can't help being lonesome
On Wolverton Mountain
When your daddy's handy
With a gun and a knife

[Chorus:]
They said my lips
Were sweeter than honey
But how do they know
When no one's made the dare
I hate the bears and the birds
On Wolverton Mountain
They tell my daddy
And it just ain't fair

Many a lad has tried
To climb this mountain
But they never seem
To reach the top

My daddy, Clifton Clowers
Is always there to meet them
His gun and a knife
Bring them to a stop

[Chorus:]

Yes, I'm the girl
From Wolverton Mountain
And if something don't change
I'll be an old maid all my life

But I keep hoping somebody
Will climb this mountain
And take me to the valley
To be his wife

[Chorus:]

There'll be somebody
Who really loves me and
He'll climb up on the mountain
He won't be killed by Clifton Clowers...
