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
My mother was a tailor She sewed my new blue jeans My father was a gambling man Down in New Orleans
And the only things a gambler needs Is a suitcase and a trunk And the only time he's satisfied Is when he's all a-drunk I've got one foot on the platform The other foot on the train I'm going back to New Orleans To wear the ball and chain
So mothers, tell your children Not to do what I have done Spend your life in sin and misery In the house of the Rising Sun
(Repeat First Verse)
There is a house in New Orleans, they call the "Rising Sun", It's been the ruin of many a poor girl, And me, oh lord, I'm one.
My mother is a tailor, she sews those new blue jeans, My husbend he's a gambling man, Drinks down in New Orleans.
My husbend in a gambler, he goes from town to town, The only time, he's satisfied, is when He drinks his liquor down.
Go tell my baby sister, never do what I have done, Shun that house in New Orleans They call the "Rising Sun".
One foot on the platform, the other's on the train, I'm going back to New Orleans, To wear that ball and chain.
Going back to New Orleans, my race is almost run, I'm going to sped the rest of my life, Beneath that "Rising Sun".
