"My Grandfather's Clock" was often played in Britain on Children's Favourites and during that period was recorded by the Radio Revellers. In the United States, a version, without the last stanza of lyrics, was on an extended-play 45 rpm record on the Peter Pan label (the other song on that side was The Syncopated Clock, and the flip side had The Arkansas Traveler and Red River Valley). Johnny Cash covered the song on his 1959 album Songs of Our Soil. Evelyn Knight recorded the song for Decca Records. Also in 1959, it was included on The Four Lads' album, Swing Along. Other versions became popular in other countries; it is well known to many generations in Japan, with a cover by singer Ken Hirai becoming massively popular in 2002. This easy piano piece is perfect for piano recitals and school performances. Performance Time Approx. 1 minute 30 seconds.

    Really fun for my students to play! .The repeated bass line and adequate fingering help with mastering this tune. My Grandfather's Clock is great to use when seeking additional repertoire for performances and/ or piano recitals.
