There is a house in New Orleans
     Am       C      E7
They call the Rising Sun
        Am       C       D           F
And its been the ruin of many a poor boy
    Am    E        Am
And God I know I'm one

   Am     C     D     F
My mother was a tailor
    Am       C       E7
She sewed my new bluejeans
   Am     C     D        F
My father was a gamblin' man
Am      E     Am
Down in New Orleans

        Am   C       D       F
Now the only thing a gambler needs
     Am       C     E7
Is a suitcase and a trunk
        Am   C         D    F
And the only time he's satisfied
   Am        E    Am
Is when he's on a drunk

   Am     C         D       F
Oh mother tell your children
       Am      C      E7
Not to do what I have done
Am         C        Dm      F
Spend your lives in sin and misery
       Am           E      Am
In the House of the Rising Sun

            Am       C      D       F
Well, I got one foot on the platform
    Am         C      E    E7
The other foot on the train
    Am    C       D     F
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
   Am        E        Am
To wear that ball and chain

            Am   C        D     F
Well, there is a house in New Orleans
     Am       C      E  E7
They call the Rising Sun
        Am       C       D           F
And its been the ruin of many a poor boy
    Am    E        Am
And God I know I'm one
