How to play Frosty The Snowman on guitar. Learn the single-note melody to Frosty just in time for the Holidays. Your kids will love this. Grab the tabs below!

From Songfacts: “Frosty” was the creation of the songwriters Steve Edward Nelson and Walter “Jack” Rollins. They were looking for a seasonal follow-up to “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer,” which was a #1 hit the year before. Unlike “Rudolph,” which was based on a book written 10 years earlier, “Frosty” was an original story. Like “Rudolph,” it was recorded by Gene Autry and also became a seasonal favorite.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say
He was made of snow but the children know
How he came to life one day
There must have been some magic in
That old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around
Oh, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me

[Chorus]
Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpety thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow

[Verse 2]
Ooh Frosty the snowman
Knew the sun was hot that day
So he said, “Let’s run and we’ll have some fun
Now before I melt away.”
Down to the village
With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square
Saying “catch me if you can!”
He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “Stop!”
Oh, Frosty the snowman
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye, saying
“Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again someday.”
