            Dm     F              G            Bb                  Dm        F          A7

There |is a    house in |New Or-leans, they |call the Rising |Sun.


            Dm         F         G                 Bb            Dm     A7          Dm

And its |been the ruin of |many a poor boy, And |God, I know I’m |one.


Verse 2. My mother was a tailor, sewed my new blue jeans

My father was a gamblin’ man down in New Orleans


Verse 3. Now the only thing a gambler needs, Is a suitcase and a trunk.

And the only time he’ll be satisfied,  is when he’s all a drunk.


Verse 4.  Oh, mother, tell your children not to do what I have done

Spend your lives in sin and misery, In the house of the Rising Sun.


Verse 5. Well I’ve got one foot on the platform, The other on the train

I’m going back to New Orleans, To wear that ball and chain.


Verse 6. Well, there is a house in New Orleans, they call the Rising Sun, And its been the ruin of many a poor boy, And God, I know I’m one.
