Grandfathers Clock Sheet Music
also known as My Grandfather's Clock Sheet Music
Grandfather's Clock (a.k.a My Grandfather's Clock) is a popular song written by the American composer Henry C. Work. There are two different stories about the genesis about this clock, but in essence both theories talk about a real-life case where a grandfather’s clock stopped once the owner had died. It is also possible that the term “grandfather clock” (longcase clocks) was coined with this tune.

It was bought on the morn
Of the day that he was born,
And was always his treasure and pride;
