Oh My Darling Clementine[edit | edit source]

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.
