Am C D F
Am E7 Am

Am         C             D             F
There is a house down in New Orleans
     Am       C      E7
They call the Rising Sun
         Am       C         D         F
And it's been the ruin of a many poor boy
    Am     E7      Am
And me, oh God, I'm one

Am       C            D            F
Mama she worked for a tailor man
Am               C        E7      
She sewed all my new Blue jeans
       Am    C     D        F
And my daddy was a gambling man
       Am          E7   Am
In the town of old New Orleans

    Am   C            D            F
The only thing that a rounder ever needs
     Am       C    E7
Is a suitcase or a trunk
        Am   C         D         F
And the only time he's ever satisfied
   Am        E7  Am
Is when he's on a drug.

     Am          C        D
Boys fill up the glasses
Right to the brim
        Am          C       E7
Let the drinks flow merrily round
      Am           C
Well, drink to the health
       D          F
Of the round poor boy
    Am           E7     Am
Who rumble from town to town

    Am            C
Now fellows don't believe
       D               F
What a bad woman tells you
        Am      C       E7
For her eyes be blue or brown
  Am                C        D
Unless you stand an old some old
Scaffold high
     Am                 E7         Am
Some fellows they won't let me come down

   Am      C        D        F
Go tell my youngest brother
       Am           C
Not to do the awful things
that I've done
       Am             C
And to shine that old house
            D         F
down in new orleans
          Am       E7    Am
That they call the rising sun

             Am      C
Soon they'll take me back
        D             F
Down to New Orleans
   Am           C 
To face all the crimes
that I've done
             Am     C     D           F
Then they'll tie me to an old bowling chain
  Am             E7     Am
Until my earthly race is run.

This is a tab of the song "House of the Rising Sun" from the 1999 album third generation blues. A different tune and chords for the song titled Rising Sun Blues on the 1964 album Doc Watson and Son, which is version 1.
