Verse:
-----

G                   G          '              C
Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh,
 Am                 D7  '                G
O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way.
G                  G     '               C
Bells on bob-tails ring, making spirits bright,
  Am               G               D7
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song
[G       D7]
tonight. Oh!


Chorus:
------

G              G            G              G7
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way!
 C           G
O what fun it is to ride
 A7                  D7
In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!
G              '            '              G7
Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way!
 C            G              D7               G     '
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh


 
Verse:
-----

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
We ran into a drifted bank and there we got upsot. 
Oh!

Chorus


Verse:
-----

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 at me as I there lay but quickly 
drove away. Oh! 


Chorus


Verse:
-----

Now the ground is white, go it while you're young
Take the girls along and sing this sleighing song
Just bet a bobtailed bay, Two forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! You'll take
the lead Oh!


Chorus
