(Oh my darling Clementine)
Just one more trip to town to tell the boys goodbye
Cody saddled up and left his darling then rode to town to celebrate his plan

Someone said it must have been past midnight when Cody had to face a jealous man
But it seems there was a dancehall girl called Nan (don't you tell) Clementine
Then there was a silence in the place
Just one more trip to town but all his chips were down
So buddies make a monument to lay down at his head

Cause Cody won't be riding back this time (to his darling) Clementine
