Johnny Cash - My Grandfathers Clock chords

      
-Capo 2nd fret-

Verse 1:
G DMy grandfather's clock
G CWas too large for the shelf
G D GSo it stood ninety years on the floor
D G CIt was taller by half than the the old man himself
G D GThough it weighed not a pennyweights more
Verse 2:
GIt was bought on the morn
C GOf the day that he was born
A DAnd was always his pleasure and pride
G DBut it stopped short
G CNever to go again
G D GWhen the old man died
Verse 3: Ninety years without slumbering His life seconds numbering It stopped, short never to go again When the old man died Verse 4: My grandfather said that of those he could hire Not a servant so faithful he found For it wasted no time and had but one desire At the close of each week to be wound Verse 5: And it kept in its place, not a frown upon its face And its hands never hung by its side But it stopped short, never to go again When the old man died Verse 6: It rang and alarmed in the dead of the night An alarm that for years had been dumb And we knew that his spirit was pluming for flight That his hour for departure had come Verse 7: Still the clock kept the time with a soft and muffled chime As we silently stood by his side But it stopped short, never to go again When the old man died Verse 8: Ninety years without slumbering His life seconds numbering It stopped short, never to go again When the old man died
