C      G7            C
(Oh my darling Clementine)


    F                              C
She knew that Cody was the man she wanted

G7                                C
But she had waited nearly all her life

     F                        C
Just one more trip to town to tell the boys goodbye

     G7                               C
Then he'd be back to take her for his wife

           G7           C
(Don't you worry) Clementine


F                            C
Cody saddled up and left his darling

     G7                            C
Then rode to town to celebrate his plan

   F                                C
He told them this would be his last carousing

    G7                          C
I'm gonna settle down boys if I can

         G7             C
(With my darling) Clementine


F                                   C
Someone said it must have been past midnight

G7                              C
When Cody had to face a jealous man

  F                        C
Another story goes that no one really knows

       G7                                C
But it seems there was a dance-hall girl called Nan

           G7          C
(Don't you tell) Clementine


F                                 C
We do know that a shot or two was heard from some back room

     G7                         C
Then there was a silence in the place

     F                         C
Just one more trip to town but all his chips were down

     G7                      C
They found Cody lying on his face

        G7             C
(Softly calling) Clementine


F                             C
So buddies make a monument to lay down at his head

G7                              C
Sure you hate to leave your pal behind

F                                 C
Mother help your daughter put her wedding dress away

      G7                             C
Cause Cody won't be riding back this time

        G7             C
(To his darling) Clementine
