[Intro]

D  A  D


[Verse 1]

D                           D7
There is a house down in New Orleans
     G               D
They call the Rising Sun 
D                           G
And it's been the ruin of a many poor boy
    D      A         D
And me, oh God , for one


[Verse 2]

D                        D7
Then fill the glasses to the brim
        G                  D
Let the drinks go merrily around
D                                  G
And we'll drink to the health of a rounder poor boy
    D         A7       D
Who goes from town to town


[Verse 3]

D                         D7     
The only thing that a rounder needs
     G              D
Is a suitcase and a trunk
D                      G
And the only time he's satisfied
   D         A7   D 
Is when he's on a drunk


[Instrumental]

[Verse 4]

D                                       D7 
Now boys don't believe what a girl tells you
           G               D
Though her eyes be blue or brown
D                    G        G7
Unless she's on some scaffold high
        D       A7         D
Saying "Boys, I can't come down."


[Verse 5]

D                          D7
Go tell my youngest brother
       G                  D
Not to do the things I've done
D                              G
But to shun that house down in New Orleans
     D        A      D
They call the Rising Sun

[Verse 6]

D                           D7
I'm going back, back to New Orleans
       G              D
For my race is nearly run
D                          G
Gonna spend the rest of my wicked life
  D          A      D
Beneath that Rising Sun
