INTRO- Am, C, D, F, Am, E, Am, E

      Am   C        D           F
There is a house in New Orleans
     Am       C      E   E
They call the Risin' 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.

Now, the only thing a gambler needs
     Am       C     E     E
Is a suitcase and a trunk
        Am   C         D          F
And the only time that he's satis-fied
   Am        E    Am
Is when he's on a drunk

Not to do what I have done.

In the house of the risin' sun.
