This song is a quickly played 6/8 time and I suggest to use the following 
strumming pattern for each chord:

1----2--and--3--4----5--6 
down-up-down-up-down-up-up

Have fun!

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

   Am     C     Dm    F
My mother was a tailor
    Am       C       E    E7
She sewed my new bluejeans
   Am     C     Dm       F
My father was a gamblin' man
Am      E     Am
Down in New Orleans

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

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

            Am       C      Dm      F
Well, I got one foot on the platform
    Am         C      E    E7
The other foot on the train
    Am    C       Dm    F
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
   Am        E        Am
To wear that ball and chain

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

Good job. But if you're having difficulty in hitting those highs without a good loud scream, and prefer to sing a little lower, try it in Em.

Great job. Is my ear totally wrong though? (I don't mind being told it is!) I pretty much have to play a D-major instead of a D-minor in this song... I think perhaps for my acoustic guitar and for my singing voice it sounds better, but I'm sure Jorn knows better for the original version.
