Traditional Folk Song


Intro: :6/8: Am Am7 | C | D Dadd11 | F Fadd9
       Am | E Eadd9+ | Am Am7 | E Eadd9+

      Am   C        D            F
There is a house in New Orleans,
     Am       C      E
They call the Rising Sun.
Eadd9+   Am       C       D             F
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy,
     Am     E    Eadd9+ Am
And, God, I know I’m one.

Instrumental: :6/8: Am | C | D D6 | F Fadd11+
              Am Am7 | E E7 | Am | E E7

   Am     C     D       F7
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      E7    Am
Down in New Orleans.

Instrumental: :6/8: Am | C | D | F | Am | E7 | Am | E7

         Am   C       D       F7
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
   Am        E7      Am
Is when he’s on a drunk.

Instrumental: :6/8: Am | C | D | F | Am | E7 | Am | E7

               Am | C | D | F | Am | E7
               Am | C | D | F | Am | E7 | Am | E7

    Am    C               D    F7
Oh, mother, tell your children
       Am      C      E7
Not to do what I have done.
Am         C        D              F7
Spend your lives in sin and misery
       Am           E7       Am
In the house of the Rising Sun.

Instrumental: :6/8: Am | C | D | F | Am | E7 | Am | E7sus4

               Am       C         D      F7
Well, I’ve got one foot on the platform,
    Am         C         E7
The other foot on the train.
    Am    C       D           F7
I’m going back to New Orleans
   Am        E7          Am
To wear that ball and chain.

Instrumental: :6/8: Am | C | D | F | Am | E7 | Am | E7sus4

            Am   C        D        F7
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     E7       Am
And, God, I know I’m one.
