Oh My Darling, Clementine is likely based on Down by the River Liv’d a Maiden, a 19th century minstrel song written by . Like Oh! Susanna by Stephen Foster, Down by the River Liv’d a Maiden is a parody of slave music and speech. Here’s a sample of those original lyrics: Her lips were like two luscious beefsteaks Dipp’d in tomato sauce and brine And like the cashmere goatess covering Was the fine wool of Clementine.

Oh My Darling Clementine. In a cavern, in the 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. Dreadful sorry, Clementine. Drove she ducklings to the water. Ev'ry morning just at nine. Dropped her foot against a splinter. Fell into the foaming brine.
The song is believed to have been based on another song called "Down by the River Liv'd a Maiden" by H. Thompson (1863). It is commonly performed in the key of F Major. Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.
