Program Notes on Jingle Bells by Pierpont :

James Lord Pierpont first published this famous sleighing song under the title The One Horse Open Sleigh on September 16, 1857.

In 1859, he reissued the song under a new title : Jingle Bells.

It bears the dedication : To John P. Ordway.

It is believed that Pierpont, a minister, composed this song for children celebrating Thanksgiving at his Boston Sunday School.

The song was so well received that it was repeated at Christmas.

The lyrics of the song capture the essence of a traditional Christmas and the bells announce the arrival of Santa Claus to the delight of children of all ages!

Over time, the song has become associated with the joys of winter and the holidays, and has been translated into many languages.

This score is an arrangement of the winter song Jingle Bells for beginning guitarists.

It is set in the key of C Major.

Jingle Bells

1. Dashing through the snow,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bobtail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.

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
We ran into a drifted bank
And there we got upsot.
Jingle bells, jingle bells...

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.
Jingle bells, jingle bells...

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.
Jingle bells, jingle bells...
