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! 

Thou art 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

 She fell into the foaming brine.

Ruby lips above the water,

 Blowing bubbles, soft and fine,

 But, alas, I was no swimmer,

 I couldn't save that Clementine.


How I missed her! How I missed her,

 How I missed my Clementine,

 But I kissed her little sister,

 Forgot my Clementine.

Chorus 2X
