Jingle Bells

{t:Jingle Bells}
{st:(James Pierpont. publ.1857)}

[G]Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open [C]sleigh
O'er the fields we go
[Am]Laughing [D7]all [C]the [G]way
Bells on bob-tail ring
Making spirits [C]bright
What [Am]fun it is to [D]ride and sing
A [D7]sleighing song t[G]onight

Oh, [G]Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle [C]all the [G]way
[C]Oh, what fun it [G]is to ride
In a [A7]one-horse open [D]sleigh
[G]Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle [C]all the [G]way
 Oh [C]What fun it [G]is to ride
In a [D7]one-horse open [G]sleigh.


A[G] day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ri[C]de
And soon Miss Fanny Br[Am]ight

Was se[D7]ated by m[C]y sid[G]e;

T[G]he horse was lean and lank

Misfortune seemed his lo[C]t,

We ran into a drifted ba[Am]nk

And the[D7]re we go[C]t upso[G]t.

A [G]day or two ago

The story I must t[C]ell

I went out on the snow

And o[D7]n my bac[C]k I f[G]ell;

[G]A gent was riding by

In a one-horse open sl[C]eigh

He laughed at me as [Am]I there sprawling l[D7]aid

But qui[C]ckly drove aw[G]ay.

Now the ground is white,

Go it while you're young,

Take the girls along

And sing this sleighing song.

Just bet a bob-tailed bay,

Two-forty as his speed,

Hitch him to an open sleigh

and crack! You'll take the lead.
