Lyrics


      Am   C        D          F
There is a house in New Orleans
     Am       G      E
They call the rising sun
         Am       C       D      F
Well its been the ruin of many a poor boy
    Am    E       Am
and god i know im one


Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

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

I always thought that the little lick was comprised of two string bends.
