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

   Bbm    C#    D#      F#7
My mother was a tailor,
    Bbm      C#       F7
She sewed my new blue jeans.
   Bbm    C#    D#       F#
My father was a gambling man
Bbm     F7    Bbm
Down in New Orleans.

Instrumental: :6/8: Bbm | C# | D# | F# | Bbm | F7 | Bbm | F7

         Bbm  C#      D#      F#7
Now, the only thing a gambler needs
     Bbm      C#    F7
Is a suitcase and a trunk.
        Bbm  C#      D#       F#
And the only time he’s satisfied
   Bbm       F7      Bbm
Is when he’s on a drunk.

    Bbm   C#              D#   F#7
Oh, mother, tell your children
       Bbm     C#     F7
Not to do what I have done.
Bbm        C#       D#             F#7
Spend your lives in sin and misery
       Bbm          F7       Bbm
In the house of the Rising Sun.

Instrumental: :6/8: Bbm | C# | D# | F# | Bbm | F7 | Bbm | F7

               Bbm      C#        D#     F#7
Well, I’ve got one foot on the platform,
    Bbm        C#        F7
The other foot on the train.
    Bbm   C#      D#          F#7
I’m going back to New Orleans
   Bbm       F7          Bbm
To wear that ball and chain.

Instrumental: :6/8: Bbm | C# | D# | F# | Bbm | F7 | Bbm | F7

And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy,
     Bbm    F7       Bbm
And, God, I know I’m one.
