Oh My Darling Clementine

Misc. Traditional

 CG7
In a cavern, in a canyon, excavating for a mine
 CG7C
Dwelt a miner, forty-niner, and his daughter Clementine.

chorus
 CG7
Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine
 CG7C
You are lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry, Clementine.
end chorus

 CG7
 Light she was and like a fairy and her shoes were number nine.
 CG7C
Herring boxes without topses, sandals were for Clementine.

chorus

 CG7
 Drove she ducklings to the water every morning just at nine
 CG7C
Hit her foot against a splinter, fell into the foaming brine.

chours

 CG7
Ruby lips above the water, blowing bubbles soft and fine,
 CG7C
As for me, I was no swimmer, so I lost my Clementine.

chorus

 CG7
In a churchyard near the canyon where the myrtle doth entwine
 CG7C
There grow roses and other posies, fertilized by Clementine.

chorus

 CG7
Now ye Boy Scouts, heed the warning to this tragic tale of mine,
 CG7C
Artificial respiration would have saved my Clementine.

chorus

 CG7
How I missed her, how I missed her, how I missed my Clementine,
 CG7C
'Til I kissed her little sister and forgot my Clementine.

chorus
