Oh My Darling, Clementine chords
Percy Montrose (1884)

* alternate

G In a cavern, in a canyon,
D7 excavating for a mine;
C G dwelt a miner, forty-niner,
D7 G and his daughter Clementine.
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.
G Light she was, and like a fairy,
D7 And her shoes were number nine,
C G Herring boxes without topses,
D7 G Sandals were for Clementine.
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.
G Walking lightly as a fairy,
D7 Though her shoes were number nine,
C G Sometimes tripping, lightly skipping,
D7 G Lovely girl, my Clementine
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.
GDrove she ducklings to the water
D7 Ev'ry morning just at nine,
C G Hit her foot against a splinter,
D7 G Fell into the foaming brine.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
G Then, the miner, forty-niner,
D7 Soon began to fret and pine,
C G Thought he oughter join his daughter,
D7 C So he's now with Clementine.
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.
G I'm so lonely, lost without her,
D7 Wish I'd had a fishing line,
C G Which I might have cast about her,
D7 G Might have saved my Clementine.
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.
G In my dreams she still doth haunt me,
D7 Robed in garments soaked with brine,
C G Then she rises from the waters,
D7 G And I kiss my Clementine.
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.
G Listen fellers, heed the warning
D7 Of this tragic tale of mine,
C G Artificial respiration
D7 G Could have saved my Clementine.
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.
G How I missed her, how I missed her,
D7 How I missed my Clementine,
C G Til I kissed her little sister,
D7 G And forgot my Clementine.

C You are lost and gone forever,
G7 C Dreadful sorry, Clementine.
