Bluegrass  Jingle  Bells

Words & Music by James Pierpont, 1859


1.)   Dashing through the snow,  in a one horse open sleigh,
       O'er the fields we go,  laughing all the way;
       Bells on bob-tail ring,  making spirits bright,
       What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song to-night


Jingle bells, jingle bells,  jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride  in a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells,  jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride  in a one horse open sleigh



2.)   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 (chorus)


3.)   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 (chorus)


4.)   Now the ground is white  Go it while you're young,
       Take the girls tonight  And sing this sleighing song
       Just get a bobtailed bay  Two forty as his speed
       Hitch him to an open sleigh  And crack! you'll take the lead (chorus)
