Please shun that ole house in New Orleans
They call the Rising sun.
Im going to tell my baby sister
Please don't do like i have done
Please shun that ole house in New Orleans
They call the Rising sun.

Im going back to New Orleans
Cos' my race is almost run
Im going back to spend the rest of my life
Beneath the rising sun.
Im going back to New Orleans
Cos' my race is almost run
Im going back to spend the rest of my life
Beneath the rising sun.
