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

Bridge:
C D F Am E Am E7

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

Bridge:
C D F Am E Am E7

        Am     C        D        F    
Now the only   thing  a gambler  needs
     Am       C       E    
Is a suitcase and  a trunk.
        Am    C     D         F   
And the only  time  he's satisfied
   Am         E      Am   C D F Am E Am
Is when  he's on  a drunk.

   Am     C           D         F
Oh mother   tell your children,  
       Am       C       E    
Not to do  what I  have done.
 Am        C        D       F     
Spend your lives in sin and misery
       Am           E      Am  
In the house of the Rising Sun.

    Am          C        E    
The other  foot on  the train.
    Am     C         D          F
I'm goin   back   to New Orleans 
   Am         E         Am    
To wear  that ball  and chain.
