    House of the rising sun
    AmCDF
    There is a house in New Orleans, 
    AmCE7
    They call the "Rising Sun", 
    AmCDF
    It's been the ruin of many a poor girl, (boys?) 
    AmEAmE7
    And God, I know, I'm one. 
    My mother was a tailor,
    She sewed those new blue jeans,
    My husband he's a gambling man,
    (drinks) down in New Orleans.
    My husband in a gambler,
    He goes from town to town,
    The only time, he's satisfied, is when
    He drinks his liquor down.
    Oh, mother, tell your children
    Not to do what I have done -
    Spend your lives in sin and misery
    In the House of Rising Sun
    One foot on the platform,
    The other's on the train,
    I'm going back to New Orleans,
    to wear that ball and chain.
    Going back to New Orleans,
    My race is almost run,
    I'm going to spend the rest of my life,
    Beneath that "Rising Sun".
