The guitar chords and lyrics for 'Jingle Bells':

C                                             F
Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh,
                   G7                   C
O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way,
C                                      F
Bells on bobtails ring, making spirits bright,
                  G7                               C
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight, oh


Chorus:
C                                          C7
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
F              C               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,
F              C               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,
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.
