Jingle Bells

James Pierpont

Tom: G
G                                             C 
Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh, 
                   D7                   G 
O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way, 
G                                      C 
Bells on bobtails ring, making spirits bright, 
                  D7                               G 
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight, oh 
 
Chorus: 
G                                          G7 
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, 
C              G               A7             D       D7 
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, hey, 
G                                          G7 
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, 
C              G               D7             G 
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh.   
 
Other verses: 
A day or two ago, 
I thought I'd take a ride, 
And soon Miss Fanny Bright 
Was seated by my side; 
The horse was lean and lank; 
Misfortune seemed his lot; 
He got into a drifted bank, 
And we, we got upsot. 
 
A day or two ago, 
the story I must tell 
I went out on the snow 
And on my back I fell; 
A gent was riding by 
In a one-horse open sleigh, 
He laughed as there 
I sprawling lie, 
But quickly drove away. 
 
Now the ground is white 
Go it while you're young, 
Take the girls tonight 
And sing this sleighing song; 
Just get a bob-tailed bay 
two-forty as his speed 
Hitch him to an open sleigh 
And crack! you'll take the lead. 
 
James Pierpont - 1857
