Clementine Song

 

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)
