           "CLEMENTINE" by Bobby Darin



verse 1:

in a cavern, down by a canyon , excavating, for a mine
         C             Dm          G7            C
there lived a miner, from north carolina, and his daughter, chubby Clementine
                C                    Dm           G7                      C

verse 2:

every mornin', just about dawnin', when the sun, began to shine  
        C                Dm                G7              C

y'know she would rouse up, wake all of them cows up, and walk them down, to her daddies mine
                    C                      Dm                        G7                 C

verse 3:

we took the footbridge, across the water, and though she weighed two-ninety-nine
             C                      Dm                   G7                C
[ Tab from: ]
that bridge trembled, and dissassembled, dropped her in, to the foamy brine
             C                      Dm                G7                C

verse 3:

cracked like thunder, you know she went under, blowing bubbles, down the line
             C                          Dm             G7                C

now i'm no swimmer, but where she thinner, i might've saved that Clementine
            C                       Dm                 G7                C

verse 4:

she broke the record, way under water, we thought she, was doing fine
               C                 Dm              G7              C

i wasnt nervous, not until the service, that they held, for Clementine
            C                    Dm             G7                C

verse 5:

so hey ya sailor! way out on ya whaler, with your harpoon, your trusty line
           C                    Dm                 G7                   C

if she shows now, yell "there she blows" now, it just may be, chunky Clementine!
          C                         Dm                     G7               C

 and thats all! yay! great classic song, have fun strumming along!
