       Em           G          D
       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


VERSE

    Em                       Em/D
I cried to my daddy on the telephone
    Bm
How long now?
          Em                 Em/D
Until the clouds unroll and you come home?
    Bm
The line went
   Em                         Em/D
But the shadows still remain since your descent
    Bm
Your descent

The riff is wrong and the pre-chorus riff is missing, and you just copied the chords from the Skids chord sheet.
