D (3) In a cavern, in a canyon, A7 excavating for a mine A7 D dwelt a miner forty-niner A7 D and his daughter Clementine.
Chorus: D (3) Oh my darling, oh my darling, A7 oh my darling Clementine A7 D You are lost and gone forever, A7 D dreadful sorry, Clementine.
D (3) Light she was, and like a fairy A7 And her shoes were number nine A7 D Herring boxes without topses, A7 D Sandals were for Clementine. Chorus D (3) Walking lightly as a feather, A7 Though her shoes were number nine, A7 D Sometimes tripping, lightly skipping A7 D Lovely girl, my Clementine Chorus D (3) Drove she horses to the water A7 Every morning just at nine, A7 D Hit her foot against a splinter, A7 D Fell into the foaming brine. Chorus D (3) Ruby lips above the water, A7 Blowing bubbles soft and fine, A7 D But alas, I was no swimmer, A7 D Neither was my Clementine. Chorus
