My Grandfather's Clock Ukulele Chords

[D]Tick, [D]Tock, [D]Tick, [D]Tock, [D]Tick, [D]Tock, [D]Tick, [D]Tock

[D]My grandfather’s [A7]clock was too [D]large for the [G]shelf
So it [D]stood ninety [A7]years on the [D]floor
It was taller by [A7]half, than the [D]old man him[G]self
Though it [D]weighed not a [A7]penny-weight [D]more.
It was [D]bought on the morn of the [G]day that he was [D]born
And was [D]always his [E7]treasure and [A7]pride
But it [D]stopped [A7]short [D]never to [B7]go a[Em]gain
When the [D]old [A7]man [D]died.

My [D]grandfather [A7]said that of [D]those he could hire
Not a [D]servant so faith[A7]ful he [D]found
For it wasted no [A7]time and had [D]but one de[G]sire
At the [D]close of each [A7]week to be [D]wound
And it kept in its’ place not a [G]frown upon its’ [D]face
And its’ hands never [E7]hung by its [A7]side
But it [D]stopped [A7]short [D]never to [B7]go a[Em]gain
When the [D]old [A7]man [D]died.

For it [D]struck twenty four when he [G]enter’d at the [D]door
With a [D]blooming and [E7]beau[A7]tiful bride
But it [D]stopped [A7]short [D]never to [B7]go a[Em]gain
When the [D]old [A7]man [D]died.

It [E]rang an a[B7]larm in the [E]dead of the [A]night
An a[E]larm that for [B7]years had been [E]dumb
And we knew that his [B7]spirit was [E]pluming for [A]flight,
That his [E]hour for de[B7]parture had [E]come.

Still the [E]clock kept the [E]time, with its’ [A]soft and muffled [E]chimes
As we [E]proudly [F#7]stood by his [B7]side
But it [E]stopped [B7]short [E]never to [C#7]go a[F#m]gain
When the [E]old [B7]man [E]died.

[E]Ninety years without slumbering, [E](Dah dah dah dah, dah dah dah!)
[E]His life seconds numbering, [E](Dah dah dah dah, dah dah dah!)
It [E]stopped [B7]short [E]never to [C#7]go a[F#m]gain
When the [E]old [B7]man [E]died.
When the [E]old [B7]man [E]died.
