1. There is a house in New Orleans
         Ami      C      E
   they call the Rising Sun
             Ami    C       D           F
   and it's been a ruin of many a poor boy
       Ami   E        Ami C D F Ami E Ami E
   and God I know I'm one.

2. My mother was a tailor
   sewed my new blue jeans
   my father was a gamblin' man
   down in New Orleans.

3. Now the only thing a gambler needs
   is suitcase and trunk
   and the only time he's satisfied
   is when he's on, a drunk.

4. Oh mother tell your children
   not to do what I have done
   spend yor lives in sin and misery
   in the House of the Rising Sun.

5. Well, I've got one foot on the platform
   the other foot on the train
   I'm going back to New Orleans
   to wear that ball and chain.
