Oh My Darling Clementine

In a[C]cavern, in a canyon, - Excavating for a[G]mine
Dwelt a[G7]miner forty[C]niner, - And his[G]daughter Clemen-[C]tine
Oh my[C]darling, oh my darling, - Oh my darling, Clemen-[G]tine!
Thou art[G7]lost and gone for-[C]ever - Dreadful[G]sorry, Clemen-[C]tine.
Light she[C]was and like a fairy, - And her shoes were number[G]nine,
Herring[G7]boxes, without[C]topses, - Sandals[G]were for Clemen-[C]tine.
Drove she[C]ducklings to the water - Ev'ry morning just at[G]nine,
Hit her[G7]foot against a[C]splinter, - Fell in-[G]to the foaming[C]brine.
Ruby[C]lips above the water, - Blowing bubbles, soft and[G]fine,
But, alas, I[G7]was no[C]swimmer, - So I[G]lost my Clemen-[C]tine.
How I[C]missed her! How I missed her, - How I missed my Clemen-[G]tine,
But I kissed her[G7]little[C]sister, - I for-[G]got my Clemen-[C]tine.
