Cliff Eberhardt - Clementine



[Intro]                       
G    D    G

[Verse 1]
              
In a cavern, in a canyon
                 D7 
Excavating for a mine
        C            G    
Dwelt a miner, forty-niner
        D7             G   
And his daughter Clementine


[Chorus]
      G                 
Oh my darling, oh my darling
                    D7 
Oh my darling Clementine 
        C                G           
You are lost and gone forever
         D7           G  
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
 

[Verse 2]
          G                 
Light she was, like a feather
                          D7  
And her shoes were number nine
        C             G            
Herring boxes without topses
        D7             G          
Sandals were for Clementine
 

[Chorus]
      G                 
Oh my darling, oh my darling
                    D7 
Oh my darling Clementine 
        C                G           
You are lost and gone forever
         D7           G  
Dreadful sorry, Clementine


[Verse 3]
          G
Drove she ducklings to the water 
                      D7       
Every morning just at nine
        C              G    
Hit her foot against a splinter
       D7             G           
Fell into the foaming brine


[Chorus]
      G                 
Oh my darling, oh my darling
                    D7 
Oh my darling Clementine 
        C                G           
You are lost and gone forever
         D7           G  
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
 

[Verse 4]
     G   
Ruby lips above the water
                         D7 
Blowing bubbles soft and fine
     C             G   
But alas, I was no swimmer
        D7           G   
Neither was my Clementine
 

[Chorus]
      G                 
Oh my darling, oh my darling
                    D7 
Oh my darling Clementine 
        C                G           
You are lost and gone forever
         D7           G  
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
 

[Verse 5]
     G         
In a churchyard near the canyon 
                         D7   
Where the myrtle doth entwine
           C               G   
There grow rosies and some posies
     D7             G          
Fertilized by Clementine


[Chorus]
      G                 
Oh my darling, oh my darling
                    D7 
Oh my darling Clementine 
        C                G           
You are lost and gone forever
         D7           G  
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
 

[Chorus]
      G                 
Oh my darling, oh my darling
                    D7 
Oh my darling Clementine 
        C                G           
You are lost and gone forever
         D7           G  
Dreadful sorry, Clementine
