Johnny Cash

"Clementine"

[Verse]
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 going to 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
Because Cody won't be riding back this time
(To his darling)
Clementine
