Clementine

Lyrics

In a cavern, in a canyon  
Excavating for a mine  
Lived a miner - 49er  
And his daughter Clementine  
 
(Chorus)  
Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine  
You are lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry Clementine  
 
Light she was and like a fairy  
And her shoes were number nine  
Herring boxes with out topes  
We're sandals for my Clementine  
 
(Chorus)  
 
Drove she ducklings to the water  
Every morning just at nine  
Hit her foot upon a splinter  
Fell into the foaming brine  
 
(Chorus)  
 
Ruby lips above the water  
Blowing bubbles nice and fine  
But alas I was no swimmer  
Couldn't save my Clementine  
 
(Chorus)  
 
All You Boy Scouts take a lesson  
From this woeful tail of mine  
Artificial respiration  
Would've saved my Clementine  
 
(Chorus)  
 
How I missed her how I missed her  
How I missed my Clementine  
Till I kissed her little sister  
And forgot my Clementine  
 
(Chorus)  
 
(Chorus)
