Oh My Darling, Clementine
In a cavern, in a canyon,Excavating for a mineDwelt a miner forty niner,And his daughter ClementineChorus:Oh my darling, oh my darling,Oh my darling, Clementine!Thou art lost and gone foreverDreadful sorry, ClementineLight she was and like a fairy,And her shoes were number nine,Herring boxes, without topses,Sandals were for Clementine. --Chor.Drove she ducklings to the waterEv'ry morning just at nine,Hit her foot against a splinter,Fell into the foaming brine. -- Chor.Ruby lips above the water,Blowing bubbles, soft and fine,But, alas, I was no swimmer,So I lost my Clementine. Chor.How I missed her! How I missed her,How I missed my Clementine,But I kissed her little sister,I forgot my Clementine. Chor.
