"Clementine" lyrics

Clementine

Oh my darling
Clementine

She knew that Cody was the man she wanted
But she had waited nearly all her life
Just one more trip to town
To tell the boys goodbye
Then he'd be back to take her for his wife

Don't you worry
Clementine

Cody saddled up and left his darling
Then rode to town to celebrate his plan
He told them this would be his last carousing
"I'm gonna settle down boys if I can"

With my darling
Clementine

Someone said, "It must have been past midnight
When Cody had to face a jealous man"
Another story goes
That no one really knows
But it seems there was a dance hall girl called Nan

Don't you tell
Clementine

We do know that the shot or two
Was heard from some back room
Then there was a silence in the place
Just one more trip to town
But all his chips were down
They found Cody lying on his face

Softly calling
Clementine

So buddies, make a monument
To lay down at his head
Sure you hate to leave your pal behind
Mother, help your daughter
Put her wedding dress away
Cause Cody won't be riding back this time

To his darling
Clementine
