My Grandfather's Clock  Johnny Cash

My Grandfather?s Clock
Verse 1:
[G]My grandfather's c[D]lock
Was too l[G]arge for the sh[C]elf
So it [G]stood ninety ye[D]ars on the flo[G]or
It was ta[G]ller by h[D]alf than the the o[G]ld man hims[C]elf
Though it wei[G]ghed not a pe[D]nnyweights mo[G]re
It was [G]bought on the mo[D]rn
Of the [C]day that he was b[G]orn
And was al[G]ways his ple[C]asure and pr[D]ide
But it s[G]topped [D]short
[G]Never to go [C]again
When the [G]old [D]man d[G]ied
[G]Ninety years without sl[C]umberi[G]ng
[G]His life seconds nu[C]mberin[G]g
It stopp[G]ed, sh[D]ort ne[G]ver to go agai[C]n
When the [G]old [D]man d[G]ied
[G]My grandfather s[D]aid
that of t[G]hose he could hi[C]re
Not a [G]servant so fa[D]ithful he foun[G]d
For it wa[G]sted no t[D]ime and had b[G]ut one de[C]sire
At the cl[G]ose of each we[D]ek to be wo[G]und
And it [G]kept in its pl[D]ace,
not a f[C]rown upon its f[G]ace
[G]And its hands never h[C]ung by its s[D]ide
But it s[G]topped [D]short,
[G]never to go [C]again
When the [G]old [D]man d[G]ied
[G]It rang and alar[D]med
in the d[G]ead of the ni[C]ght
An ala[G]rm that for ye[D]ars had been d[G]umb
And we k[G]new that his s[D]pirit was pl[G]uming for fl[C]ight
That his h[G]our for dep[D]arture had co[G]me
Still t[G]he clock kept the t[D]ime
with a [C]soft and muffled ch[G]ime
[G]As we silently sto[C]od by his s[D]ide
But it s[G]topped [D]short,
[G]never to go [C]again
When the [G]old [D]man d[G]ied
[G]Ninety years withou[C]t slum[G]bering
[G]His life seconds nu[C]mberin[G]g
It stopp[G]ed sh[D]ort, n[G]ever to go aga[C]in
When the [G]old [D]man d[G]ied
