Chopped olive sandwiches, roses and wine
Red ripe persimmons, my sweet Clementine
I go on, I go on, I can't fill my cup
There's a hole in the bottom, the well has dried up

I run through the forest, I cut past the vine
Head through the thickets, many a time
[Field full] of voices, sweet voices behind
I left for the comfort of cold Clementine

Just came across this piece on the Bell - Carter Olive Company, which

"In the early 1930's, "Bell's" chopped olives were widely used in
chopped olive sandwiches (considered a delicacy at the time)"

I get chopped olives on the Saturday special I get from Subways to
take to croquet.

This song was my personal soundtrack 20 years ago after I had fallen
in love with a woman whom I eventually thought might be The One For
Me...and proceeded to do everything I could to mess it all up; of
course she rejected the heck out of me.  This song just conveyed
such a feeling of choked hopelessness and romantic desolation to me.
