Verse 1
[V]Over the river, and through the wood,
To [I]Grandmother's house we [V]go;
the [I]horse knows the way to [V]carry the sleigh
through the [VI]white and drifted [II]snow.
   
   
   
   

Verse 2
[V]Over the river, and through the wood,
to [I]Grandmother's house a [V]way!
We [I]would not stop for [V]doll or top,
for [VI]'tis Thanksgiving [II]Day.
   
   
   
   

Verse3
[V]Over the river, and through the wood—
oh, [I]how the wind does [V]blow!
It [I]stings the toes and [V]bites the nose
as [VI]over the ground we [II]go.
   
   
   
   

Verse4
[V]Over the river, and through the wood—
and [I]straight through the barnyard [V]gate,
We [I]seem to go ex [V]tremely slow,
it [VI]is so hard to [II]wait!
   
   
   
   

Verse5
[V]Over the river, and through the wood—
When [I]Grandmother sees us [V]come,
She [I]will say, "O, dear, the [V]children are here,
bring a [VI]pie for every [II]one."
   
   
   
   

Verse 6
[V]Over the river, and through the wood—
now [I]Grandmother's cap I [V]spy!
Hur [I]rah for the fun! Is the [V]pudding done?
Hur [VI]rah for the pumpkin [II]pie!
   
   
   
   

Repeat Verse 1 (below)
[V]Over the river, and through the wood,

the [I]horse knows the way to [V]carry the sleigh
through the [VI]white and drifted [II]snow. [V]
