Over the River…

3 Comments

Over the river and thru the woods,
To grandmother’s house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh,
Thru the white and drifted snow, oh!

Over the river and thru the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and thru the woods,
To have a first-rate play;
Oh, hear the bells ring, “Ting-a-ling-ling!”
Hurrah for Thanksgiving Day-ay!

Over the river and thru the wood,
Trot fast my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground,
Like a hunting hound!
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the woods,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go extremely slow
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood —
Now Grandmother’s cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Over the river and thru the woods,
To grandmother’s house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh,
Thru the white and drifted snow, oh!

Over the river and thru the woods,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!

I’ll be back later with pictures and recipes ~ I’m hoping to get our feast on the table at 3 but you know how that goes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I love this song and thought I would share a bit of trivia with you…the song was written in the town I live in now, Medford, MA. The house that the person referred to in the song is still standing and is owned by Tufts University. How cool is that????
