  G       B     Em     Em      (x4)




    


Verse 1: 

G      B           Em 
I died happy in my sleep
G      B           Em
I died happy in my sleep
     G        B         Em 
Our children around and you looking down


Chorus 1:

G          B            Em
Heaven's a julep on the porch
G          B            Em
Heaven's a julep on the porch
G           B             Em
You and me rocking the grandfather clock 
G            B         Em
Is tick-tick-tock-tick-tock (to the time we used to wind it)


(instrumental break)



Verse 2: 

G                B            Em
She brought the sugar and the mint
G                B            Em
She brought the sugar and the mint
    G              B        Em
And he brought the whiskey asked for my blessing
(NC)
Yes sir I know she's


Chorus 2:

G          B            Em
Heaven's a julep on the porch
G          B            Em
Heaven's a julep on the porch
G           B             Em
You and me rocking the grandfather clock 
G            B         Em
Is tick-tick-tock-tick-tock (to the time we used to wind it)


(instrumental break) 


Bridge: 

(D)     F#m    A      D     D
Now that time stands still
        F#m    A   D    D
We can drink our fill
       F#m A            D C#m
Out of silver that will never
    F#m       A    D    D
Tarnish like we will


(instrumental break)


Verse 3: 

G                  B                  Em
You weren't just a girl that I should meet
G             B                Em
You were the girl that I would meet
G                  B          Em
For drinks in the backyard a beautiful daughter
G              B          Em
A lifetime of summer and love ever after


Chorus 3:

G      B           Em
I died happy in my sleep
G      B           Em
I died happy in my sleep
G             B         Em
Our children around and you looking down 
     G          B             Em
From heaven's a julep on the porch
G           B             Em
Heaven's a julep on the porch
G           B             Em
You and me rocking the grandfather clock 
G            B         Em
Is tick-tick-tock-tick-tock (to the time we used to wind it)

(God the time...We used to wind it...)
