Sleigh Ride Chords
Demo Lyrics & Pdf

Leroy Anderson, in a heat wave in 1946 wrote the music for Sleigh Ride and finished it in 1948. There were no lyrics written as the piece was originally just an instrumental. Anderson never released his version until 1952. Arthur Feidler was the conductor for the Boston Pops and they began performing the song in 1949. Lyricist Mitchell Parish wrote lyrics for the song in 1950.

See the link below for the first vocal performance and recording of this song by The Andrew Sisters. Johnny Mathis recorded his version in 1958 and is the most recognizable version of this song during the holidays.

The Andrew Sisters first to record lyrics in 1950 here.

Sleigh Ride Lyrics


Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, Ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "yoo hoo"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, Let's go, Let's look at the show
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.
Giddy up, giddy up, giddy up, it's grand, just holding your hand
We're gliding along with a song of a wintery fairy land

Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be
Let's take that road before us and sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

There's a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray
It'll be the perfect ending a perfect day
We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop
At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop. pop! pop! pop!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie
It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Iives
These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives!

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, Ring ting tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "yoo hoo"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you `
