Oh My Darling Clementine Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
"Oh My Darling, Clementine" is an American western folk ballad. The words are those of a bereaved lover singing about his darling, the daughter of a "49er", (a miner in the 1849 California Gold Rush). He loses her in a drowning accident – though he consoles himself towards the end of the song with Clementine's "little sister".

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! Thou art lost and gone forever, Dreadful sorry, Clementine
Light she was and like a fairy, And her shoes were number nine, Herring boxes, without topses,Sandals were for Clementine.
Drove she ducklings to the water, Ev'ry 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.
How I missed her! How I missed her, How I missed my Clementine, But I kissed her little sister, I forgot my Clementine.
Oh my darling, oh my darling, Oh my darling, Clementine! Thou art lost and gone forever Dreadful sorry, Clementine
