[Verse 1] 

      Am   C        D          F
There is a house in New Orleans,
      Am       C      E7
They call the "Rising Sun",
     Am       C       D           F
It's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
    Am     E         Am    C    D    F
And God, I know, I'm one.

      Am   C        D          F
My mother was a tailor,
      Am       C      E7
She sewed my new blue jeans,
     Am       C       D           F
My father was a gambling man,
    Am     E         Am    C    D    F
Down in New Orleans.

      Am   C        D          F
Now the only thing a gambler needs,
      Am       C      E7
Is a suitcase and a trunk,
     Am       C       D           F
And the only time, he's satisfied, is when
    Am     E         Am    C    D    F
He's on a drunk


[Solo]


[Verse 2]

      Am   C        D          F
Oh, mother, tell your children
      Am       C      E7
Not to do what I have done -
     Am       C       D           F
Spend your lives in sin and misery
    Am     E         Am    C    D    F
In the House of Rising Sun

      Am   C        D          F
Well, I've  got one foot on the platform,
      Am       C      E7
The other's on the train,
     Am       C       D           F
I'm going back to New Orleans,
    Am     E         Am    C    D    F
to wear that ball and chain.

      Am   C        D          F
Well, there is a house in new Orleans
      Am       C      E7
They call the "Rising Sun",
     Am       C       D           F
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy,
    Am     E         Am    C    D    F
And God I know i'm one
