THE OLD KITCHEN CLOCK
Copyright, 1879, by Geo. W. Richardson & Co.
Words and Music by J. W. Turner.
The old, old clock I gaze on now to me is ever dear.
Its busy hands have told the time for many long, long year;
In boyhood days, those moments gone, I raw its welcome face.
And listened to its gentle tick while standing in this place.
'Twas ticking, ticking, ticking, ticking. ticking night And day;
I love to hear it as of old, when it ticked the time away.
The old, old clock I love to see, it looks like olden time
In this old kitchen of my sire, when he was in his prime;
It brings to me some happy thoughts that I would still retain,
There let it stand-oh, may it e'er a treasure long remain.-Chorus.
The old, old clock, the kitchen clock, of thee I love to sing;
Thou art a relic of the past, well worth remembering;
Tick on, tick on, the self same way, though scattered are the flock
That loved to hear thy ticking once, thou dear old kitchen clock.- Chorus.
