INTRO: (A->) F#m VERSE 1: A E In a cavern, in a canyon, Bm F#m Excavating for a mine, A E Dwelt a miner, forty-niner, D F#m And his daughter Clementine VERSE 2: Light she was and like a fairy, And her shoes were number nine, Herring boxes, without topses, Sandals were for Clementine. CHORUS: A F#m Clementine, Clementine A D Oh my darling, Clementine F#m VERSE 3: Drove she ducklings to the water Ev'ry morning just at nine, Hit her foot there against a splinter, Fell into the foaming brine. F#m VERSE 4: Ruby lips above the water, Blowing bubbles, soft and fine, But, alas, I was no swimmer, So I lost my Clementine. F#m CHORUS: Clementine, Clementine Oh my darling, Clementine F#m VERSE 5: Then the miner forty-niner, Soon began to peak and pine, Thought he ought to join his daughter Now he slept with Clementine. F#m VERSE 6: In my dreams she still doth haunt me, Robed in garments soaked in brine. Thought in life I used to hug her, In death, I draw the line. CHORUS: Clementine, Clementine Oh my darling, Clementine F#m VERSE 7: How I missed her! How I missed her, How I missed my Clementine, So I kissed her little sister, And I forgot my Clementine. CHORUS: Clementine, Clementine Oh my darling, Clementine CHORUS: Clementine, Clementine You are lost and gone, Clementine F#m Clementine CHORUS: Clementine, Clementine Oh my darling, Clementine CHORUS: Clementine, Clementine You are lost and gone, Clementine F#m A Clementine
