1st Verse
My G grandfather's D clock was too G large for the C shelf
So it G stood ninety D years on the G floor
It was G taller by D half than the G old man him- C self
Though it G weighed not a D pennyweight G more
It was G bought on the morn of the C day that he was G born
And was G always his A treasure and D pride
But it G stopped D short, G never to go a- C gain
When the G old D man G died
Chorus
G Ninety years without slumbering, tick, tock, tick, tock
G His life seconds numbering, tick, tock, tick, tock
It G stopped D short, G never to go a- C gain
When the G old D man G died
2nd Verse
In G watching its D pendulum G swing to and C fro
Many G hours had he D spent while a G boy
And in G childhood and D manhood the G clock seemed to C know
And to G share both his D grief and his G joy
For it G struck twenty-four when he C entered at the G door
With a G blooming and A beautiful D bride
But it G stopped D short, G never to go a- C gain
When the G old D man G died
(Chorus)
3rd Verse
My G grandfather D said, that of G those he could C hire
Not a G servant so D faithful he G found
For it G wasted no D time, and had G but one de- C sire
At the G close of each D week to be G wound
And it G kept in its place, not a C frown upon its G face
And its G hand never A hung by its D side
But it G stopped D short, G never to go a- C gain
When the G old D man G died
(Chorus)
4th Verse
It G rang an a- D larm in the G dead of the C night
An a- G larm that for D years had been G dumb
And we G knew that his D spirit was G pluming for C flight
That his G hour of de- D parture had G come
Still the G clock kept the time, with a C soft and muffled G chime
As we G silently A stood by his D side
But it G stopped D short, G never to go a- C gain
When the G old D man G died
(Chorus)
