By: Folk song[1][2](approve sites)



Performed: The Animals

Am C Dm F Am C E E7
There is a house in New Orleans, they call the Rising Sun
Am C Dm F Am E Am E
It's been the ruin of many poor boy and me, oh Lord, I'm one
 
Am C Dm F Am C E E7
My mother was a tailor, she sewed my new blue jeans
Am C Dm F Am E Am E
My father was a gambling man way down in New Orleans
 
Am C Dm F Am C E E7
If I had listened to what my Mama said, I'd a been at home today
Am C Dm F Am E Am E
Being so young and foolish, poor boy, let a rambler lead me astray
 
Am C Dm F Am C E E7
The only thing a gambler needs is a suitcase and a trunk
Am C Dm F Am E Am E
And the only time he's satisfied is when he's on a drunk
 
Am C Dm F Am C E E7
Go tell my baby sister, not to do what I have done
Am C Dm F Am E Am E
But to shun that house in New Orleans they call the Rising Sun
 
Am C Dm F Am C E E7
I've got one foot on the platform, and the other on the train
Am C D F Am E Am E
I'm going back to New Orleans to wear that ball and chain
 
Am C Dm F Am C E E7
I'm going back to New Orleans, my race is almost run
Am C Dm F Am E Am E
I'm going to spend the rest of my life in the House of the Rising Sun
 
repeat first verse
