The Rembrandts – Hang On, Clementine! lyrics

It rained the night away, the day I left the mine
A banjo on my knee, Susannah don't you cry
Our wagon lost a wheel, along the rocky wind
I'll make it up to you, my darlin' Clementine
Hang on (Hang on), clementine
Hang on, clementine
Hang on (Hang on), clementine
Hang on, clementine
I sold the farm for gold-That's how the story tells
Against your very will, I bought a wishing well-Yes I did!
The days indeed were hard, and fortune was not mine
I will return to you, my darlin' Clementine
(Chorus 2x)
(Chorus to fade)
