Die Akkorde und Texte von Jingle Bells stammen vom amerikanischen Komponisten James Lord Pierpont. Jingle Bells bedeutet so etwas wie „Klimpert, ihr Schellen“ und bedeutet das Klingeln der Glocken am Gurtzeug winterlicher Pferdeteams.


Jingle Bells

Capo 3 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. C Bells on bob-tails ring, making spirits bright, Am D D7 G D7 What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight. Oh!
G C G 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 Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! C G O what fun it is to ride D7 G In a one-horse open sleigh
G C A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride Am D7 G And soon Miss Fanny Bright was seated by my side C The horse was lean and lank, Misfortune seemed his lot Am D D7 G D7 We ran into a drifted bank and there we got upset. Oh!
G C G 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 C G Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! C G O what fun it is to ride D7 G In a one-horse open sleigh
G C A day or two ago, the story I must tell Am D7 G I went out on the snow and on my back I fell C A gent was riding by in a one-horse open sleigh Am D D7 G D7 He laughed at me as I there lay but quickly drove away. Oh!
G C G 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 C G Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! C G O what fun it is to ride D7 G In a one-horse open sleigh
G C Now the ground is white, go it while you're young Am D7 G Take the girls along and sing this sleighing song C Just bet a bobtailed bay, Two forty as his speed Am D D7 G D7 Hitch him to an open sleigh and crack! You'll take the lead. Oh!
G C G 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 C G Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! C G O what fun it is to ride D7 G In a one-horse open sleigh
