Dear Barbara and family,

I'm praying for friends to comfort you, faith to uphold you and loving memories to help you smile again.

My walking dreams often brings me in the empty auditoriums left dusty since decades, then I stroll behind the velvet curtain to look on backstage area. Sometime there's an unknow or a celeb standing there, a real old man, holding a guitar. If the guy like we talk about the old days and try together to put all the various pieces of the puzzle of its life and time. If he rather like to stay silent, being tired by years, it doesn't not matter 'cause I still had in head the last chord of the song he was singing all alone before I come in.
Claude was one of these precious friends who loaned me the auditorium's key and helped me to make that world a better place with my ballpen. Music is a gift of God and a strong weapon for love!

I was sorry to hear of Claude King's
recent passing and I send my prayers
& love to all his family members for
their great loss.
Hes probably already playing his music
and has everyone smiling just as he did
for everyone of us left behind.
May God protect & watch over his family
members as Claude would want that for sure. God bless them all.
Sincerely,
Alma Ray Stevens-Thigpen

Our thoughts and prayers are with the King family.
From the beautiful music I first heard in Cedar Grove in the early 60's to the songs still being played, only now we hear them straight from Heaven. We were all so blessed.

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
