JINGLE BELLS                                      He laughed as there
                                                  I sprawling lie,
CF                                                But quickly drove away.
Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse
open sleigh,                                      Now the ground is white
                                                  Go it while you're young,
                G7 C                              Take the girls tonight
O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way,      And sing this sleighing song;
CF                                                Just get a bob-tailed bay
Bells on bobtails ring, making spirits bright,    two-forty as his speed
                                                  Hitch him to an open sleigh
               G7 C                               And crack! you'll take the lead.
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song
tonight, oh

Chorus:

C C7

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,

FC            D7 G7

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open

sleigh, hey,

C C7

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,

FC            G7 C

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,
