song facts

Clementine is one of the most popular American folk ballads. There are many different versions of the song, but they all center around a tragic love story.

Clementine was sung during the Gold Rush in 1849. The lyrics and music were first published in 1884. Scouts use it as a much-loved campfire song.

Clementine was a favourite song of Huckleberry Hound (Hanna-Barbera cartoon character). Actually, it was the only song he knew!

The song plays during the opening credits for the John Ford movie My Darling Clementine, with Henry Fonda. It also runs as a background score all through the movie.
