G G         
In a cavern, in a canyon,
D7 D7
excavating for a mine;
C C G G
dwelt a miner, forty-niner,
D7 D7 G G
and his daughter Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
Light she was, and like a fairy,
D7 D7
And her shoes were number nine,
C C G G
Herring boxes without topses,
D7 D7 G G
Sandals were for Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
Walking lightly as a fairy,
D7 D7
Though her shoes were number nine,
C C G G
Sometimes tripping, lightly skipping,
D7 D7 G G
Lovely girl, my Clementine

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
Drove she ducklings to the water
D7 D7
Ev'ry morning just at nine,
C C G G
Hit her foot against a splinter,
D7 D7 G G
Fell into the foaming brine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
Ruby lips above the water,
D7 D7
Blowing bubbles soft and fine,
C C G G
But alas, I was no swimmer,
D7 D7 G G
Neither was my Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
In a churchyard near the canyon,
D7 D7
Where the myrtle doth entwine,
C C G G
There grow rosies and some posies,
D7 D7 G G
Fertilized by Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
Then, the miner, forty-niner,
D7 D7
Soon began to fret and pine,
C C G G
Thought he oughter join his daughter,
D7 D7 C C
So he's now with Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
I'm so lonely, lost without her,
D7 D7
Wish I'd had a fishing line,
C C G G
Which I might have cast about her,
D7 D7 G G
Might have saved my Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
In my dreams she still doth haunt me,
D7 D7
Robed in garments soaked with brine,
C C G G
Then she rises from the waters,
D7 D7 G G
And I kiss my Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
Listen fellers, heed the warning
D7 D7
Of this tragic tale of mine,
C C G G
Artificial respiration
D7 D7 G G
Could have saved my Clementine.

G G
Oh my darling, oh my darling,
D7 D7
oh my darling Clementine
C C G G
You are lost and gone forever,
D7 D7 G G
dreadful sorry, Clementine.

G G
How I missed her, how I missed her,
D7 D7
How I missed my Clementine,
C C G G
Til I kissed her little sister,
D7 D7 G G
And forgot my Clementine.
