Clementine

Oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’ Clementine,
Oh how long you’ve been neglected, dreadful sorry Clementine.

I first saw you, in the Anspach, and I knew you would be mine,
Though you cost a pretty penny, you were worth it, Clementine.

How you gleamed there, in the window, with a sunburst you did shine,
When we sang out, we were magic, friends for ever, Clementine.

When I held you, how I trembled, knowing my old storyline,
Disappointment could be our fate, stacked against us, Clementine.

As we played there, in the sunlight, there was promise for a time,
With some patience, with some practice, we could make it, Clementine.

Then the days just got so busy, that was my old sorry line
And I spurned you for another, you were trouble, Clementine.

But I never meant to leave you, you are always on my mind,
One day soon we’ll be together, this I promise Clementine.

Oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’, oh my darlin’ Clementine,
Oh how long you’ve been neglected, dreadful sorry Clementine.

  1. Did you really name her Clementine? That’s amazing. Also, remember your post where you created this ideal writing routine where you woke up early and…? Well, in my ideal world, I am musical and play the guitar and sing along and etc. Maybe someday…

    1. Yes, for what it was worth, I did name her Clementine. I don’t know how to play, I’m trying to teach myself using an online lesson plan. My husband plays and actually builds his own guitars. He’s very keen for me to learn, but I’m not a great student.

  2. Oh, I love this, and am showing my husband. Reality of making a living interfered with my husband’s sing-songwriting dreams but he still makes time, wishing he had more. Someday. Love the name!
