Clementine - Bobby Darin

In a cavern
Down by a canyon
Excavatin' for a mine
There lived a miner
From North Carolina
And ? his daughter
Chubby Clementine.

Now, every mornin'
Yeah ? just about dawnin'
When the sun
Began to shine
You know she would rouse up
Wake all-a-dem cows up
And ? walk 'em down to her Daddy's mine.

I took the footbridge
Way 'cross the water
Though she weighed
Two ninety-nine
The old bridge trembled
And disassembled ? oops!
Dumped her into the foamy brine.

Hey ? crack like thunder ? hut, hut ?
You know she went under ? hut, hut ?
Blowin? bubbles down the line
Hey! I'm no swimm'a
But were she slimm'a
I might'a saved
That Clementine.

Ho ? she broke the record
Way under water
I thought that she was doin' fine
I wasn't nervous
Not until the service
That they held
For Clementine.

Hey ? you sailor ? hut, hut ?
Way out in your whaler
A-with your harpoon an? your trusty line
If she shows now,yell... ?
A-there she blows now!
It just may be
Chunky, Clementine.

One more time!

Oh, my darlin' ? oh, my darlin'
Oh, my darlin' ? oh, my darlin'
Oh, my darlin' ? sweet Clementine
You may be gone ? but ?
You're not forgotten
Fare thee well ?
So long ?
Clementine ?
