How to Play Jolly Old Saint Nicholas – Piano Tutorial, Guitar Chords and Tabs, Notes, Keys, Sheet Music

Christmas song, U.S.A.

“Jolly Old Saint Nicholas” is a Christmas song originated by a poem by Emily Huntington Miller (1833-1913), published as “Lilly’s Secret” in The Little Corporal Magazine in December 1865, as the lyrics in common use closely resemble Miller’s 1865 poem. It is traditionally performed to a melody which James Lord Pierpont wrote in 1857 for the original version of “Jingle Bells”.

The song has been attributed to John Piersol McCaskey, a school principal and former Mayor of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, who wrote the song in 1867. The “Johnny” mentioned in the song who wants a pair of skates is McCaskey’s late son, John, who died as a child.
