There [Am]is a [C]house in [D]New Or[F]leans,
They [Am]call the [C]Rising [E]Sun, [E]    
And it's [Am]been the [C]ruin of [D]many a poor [F]boy,
And [Am]God, I [E]know I'm [Am]one. [C]    [D]    [F]    [Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]    

My [Am]mother [C]was a [D]tailor, [F]    
She [Am]sewed my [C]new blue [E]jeans. [E]    
My [Am]father [C]was a [D]gambling [F]man,
[Am]Down in [E]New Or[Am]leans. [C]    [D]    [F]    [Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]    

And the [Am]only [C]thing a [D]gambler [F]needs,
Is a [Am]suitcase [C]and a [E]trunk, [E]    
And the [Am]only [C]time he's [D]satis[F]fied,
Is [Am]when he's [E]all a-[Am]drunk. [C]    [D]    [F]    [Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]    

I've [Am]got one [C]foot on the [D]platform, [F]    
The [Am]other foot [C]on the [E]train. [E]    
I'm [Am]going [C]back to [D]New Or[F]leans,
To [Am]wear the [E]ball and [Am]chain. [C]    [D]    [F]    [Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]    

So [Am]mothers, [C] tell your [D]children, [F]    
Not to [Am]do what [C]I have [E]done. [E]    
Spend your [Am]life in [C]sin and [D]misery, [F]    
In the [Am]House of the [E]Rising [Am]Sun. [C]    [D]    [F]    [Am]    [E]    [Am]    [E]

There is a house in New Orleans,
They call the Rising Sun,
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
And God, I know I'm one.

My mother was a tailor,
She sewed my new blue jeans.
My father was a gambling man,
Down in New Orleans.

And the only thing a gambler needs,
Is a suitcase and a trunk,
And the only time he's satisfied,
Is when he's all a-drunk.

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

So mothers, tell your children,
Not to do what I have done.
Spend your life in sin and misery,
In the House of the Rising Sun.
