Oh My Darling Clementine

Song Author Barker Bradford Lyrics by: Barker Bradford Performer: Ýmsir Submitted by: gilsi
In a [G]cavern, in a canyon,
excavating for a [D7]mine;
dwelt a [C]miner, forty-[G]niner,
and his [D7]daughter Clemen[G]tine.

Oh my[G] darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clemen[D7]tine   
You are [C]lost and gone for[G]ever,
dreadful [D7]sorry, Clemen[G]tine.

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

Oh my [G]darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clemen[D7]tine   
You are [C]lost and gone for[G]ever,
dreadful [D7]sorry, Clemen[G]tine.

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

Oh my [G]darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clemen[D7]tine   
You are [C]lost and gone for[G]ever,
dreadful [D7]sorry, Clemen[G]tine.

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

Oh my [G]darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clemen[D7]tine   
You are [C]lost and gone for[G]ever,
dreadful [D7]sorry, Clemen[G]tine.

Ruby [G]lips above the water,
Blowing bubbles soft and [D7]fine,
But a[C]las, I was no [G]swimmer,
Neither [D7]was my Clemen[G]tine.

Oh my [G]darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clemen[D7]tine   
You are [C]lost and gone for[G]ever,
dreadful [D7]sorry, Clemen[G]tine.

I'm so [G]lonely, lost without her,
Wish I'd had a fishing [D7]line,
Which I [C]might have cast a[G]bout her,
Might have [D7]saved my Clemen[G]tine.

Oh my [G]darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clemen[D7]tine   
You are [C]lost and gone for[G]ever,
dreadful [D7]sorry, Clemen[G]tine.

How I [G]missed her, how I missed her,
How I missed my Clemen[D7]tine,
Til I [C]kissed her little [G]sister,
And for[D7]got my Clemen[G]tine.

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

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
oh my darling Clementine
You are 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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