Over the River and Through the Woods

Over the river and through the woods
to grandmother's house we go;
The horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
Through the white and drifted snow.

Over the River and through 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 through the woods ,
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,
Now Grandfather's face I spy!
Hurrah for the fun!
Is the turkey done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

A wonderful song to sing during the Thanksgiving. I'm certain there is more than one book with this song in it. I have one published by Simon & Schuster illustrated by Normand Chartier. You certainly don't need a book if you know the words.
