Verse E Dashing through the snow, A In a one-horse open sleigh, B7 O'er the fields we go, E Laughing all the way. E Bells on bob-tail ring. A Making spirits bright, B7 What fun it is to ride and sing E A sleighing song to-night. Chorus E Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. A E Oh what fun it is to ride F#7 B7 In a one-horse open sleigh. E Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. A E Oh what fun it is to ride B7 E In a one-horse open sleigh.If you liked this lesson, click on Jeremy Cotton's WholeNote lesson: Frosty. (I like it better at a 180 tempo.)
