      Bm   D        E            G
There is a house in New Orleans,
     Bm       D      F#
They call the Rising Sun.
F#add9+  Bm       D       E             G
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy,
     Bm     F#   F#add9+ Bm
And, God, I know I’m one.

   Bm     D     E       G7
My mother was a tailor,
    Bm       D        F#7
She sewed my new blue jeans.
   Bm     D     E        G
My father was a gambling man

Down in New Orleans.

         Bm   D       E       G7
Now, the only thing a gambler needs
     Bm       D     F#7
Is a suitcase and a trunk.
        Bm   D       E        G
And the only time he’s satisfied
   Bm        F#7     Bm
Is when he’s on a drunk.

    Bm    D               E    G7
Oh, mother, tell your children
       Bm      D      F#7
Not to do what I have done.
Bm         D        E              G7
Spend your lives in sin and misery
       Bm           F#7      Bm
In the house of the Rising Sun.

               Bm       D         E      G7
Well, I’ve got one foot on the platform,
    Bm         D         F#7
The other foot on the train.
    Bm    D       E           G7
I’m going back to New Orleans
   Bm        F#7         Bm
To wear that ball and chain.
