Am         C        D     F
There is a house in New Orleans,
Am            C      E    E
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 Am E Am E 
And God, I know, I'm one                   

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

Am        C     D     F                    
And the only things a gambler needs        
Am            C      E    E          
Is a suitcase and a trunk                  
Am            C       D           F        
And the only time he's satisfied           
Am         E         Am    C D F Am E Am E 
Is when he's all a-drunk

Am        C     D     F                    
I've got one foot on the platform          
Am            C      E    E          
The other foot on the train                
Am            C      E    E          
I'm going back to New Orleans
Am         E         Am    C D F Am E Am E 
To wear the ball and chain

Am        C     D     F
So mothers, tell your children
Am            C      E    E
Not to do what I have done
Am            C      E    E
Spend your life in sin and misery
Am         E         Am    C D F Am E Am E 
In the house of the Rising Sun

Am         C        D     F
There is a house in New Orleans,
Am            C      E    E
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 Am E Am E 
And God, I know, I'm one
