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

Barbara, Jay, Brad and Duane, I am so sorry to hear of Claude's passing. He was such a kind, humble man and very much a father figure to my ex-husband David. I always smile when I hear Wolverton Mountain on the radio and picture Claude and the Nashville Knights performing it in my mind. That was so long ago, but seems like yesterday. May God wrap his arms around you during this difficult time and give you comfort.
