6-beat intro. Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
In a cavern in a canyon, excavating for a mine,
Dwelt a miner forty niner and his daughter Clementine.
Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine,
You are lost and gone forever, I am sorry Clementine.
Light she was and like a fairy, and her shoes were number nine,
Herring boxes without topses, sandals were for Clementine.
Drove she ducklings to the water, every morning just at nine,
Hit her foot against a splinter, fell into the foaming brine.
