Lyrics

In a cavern, in a canyon
Excavating for a mine
Lived a miner forty-niner
And his daughter, Clementine

Chorus:
Oh, my darlin', oh my darlin'
Oh my darlin', Clementine!
You were lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine!

Light she was and like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes without topses
Sandals were for clementine

Chorus...

Drove she ducklings to the water
Every morning, just at nine
Hit her foot against a splinter
Fell into the foaming brine

Chorus...

Ruby lips above the water
Blowing bubbles, soft and fine
But alas, I was no swimmer
So I lost my Clementine

Chorus...

When the miner, forty-niner
Soon began to peak and pine
Thought he oughta join his daughter
Now he's with his Clementine

Chorus...

In the corner, of the churchyard
Where the myrtle bows and twines
Grow the roses in their poses
Fertilized by Clementine

Chorus...

In my dreams she still doth haunt me
Robed in garments soaked in brine
Though in life I used to hug her
Now she's dead, I'll draw the line

Chorus...

How I miss her, how I miss her
How I miss my Clementine!
So I kiss her little sister...
And forgot my Clementine

Chorus...
Chorus...
