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
You are gone and lost forever
Dreadfull sorry Clementine

Light she was and like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes without topses
Sandles were for Clementine

Drove her ducklings to the water
Every morning just at nine
Hit her foot against a splinter
Fell into the foaming brine

Ruby lips above the water
Blowing bubbles, soft and fine
But alas, I was no swimmer
So I lost my Clementine

Then the miner, forty-niner
Soon began to weep and pine
Thought he ought to join his daughter
Now he's with his Clementine

In my dreams she still does haunt me
Roped in garments soaked in brine
Though in life I used to hug her
Now she's dead I draw the line

How I missed her, how I missed her
How I missed my Clementine
But I kissed her little sister
And forgot my Clementine
