Oh my darling, Clementine
How could I leave while you were sleeping?
Oh my darling, Clementine
I couldn't bear to hear you weeping
You tried to teach me right from wrong
And you tried to burn off all my bad ways
But misery's a stubborn friend
And she persists, in spite of good days

So I sail out from your white sands
On a ship of broken plans
And your face was on my mind
Oh my darling, Clementine

Oh my lovely Clementine
It's such a hell to be without you
My soul tormented every night
And every day, I think about you
I adored your foolish charm
Never meant to do you harm
And your pain was on my mind
Oh my darling, Clementine

Oh my precious Clementine
I never dared to look behind me
All this time I ran and ran
And I ran the ground, and I pray you'll find me

And with all the bad I've done
I realize that you're the one
And I hope you'll still be mine
Oh my darling, Clementine

And with all the bad I've done
I realize that you're the one
I'm such a fool
Will you be mine?
Oh my precious Clementine

I'm such a fool
Will you be mine?
Oh my lovely Clementine

I'm such a fool
Will you be mine?
Oh my darling Clementine
