    Lyrics

    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
    Sewed my new blue jeans
    My father was a gambling man
    Down in New Orleans

    Now the only thing a gambler needs
    Is a suitcase and a trunk
    And the only time he's satisfied
    Is when he's on a drunk

    Oh mother tell your children
    Not to do what I have done
    Spend your lives in sin and misery
    In the house of the Rising Sun

    Well I got one foot on the platform
    The other foot on the train
    I'm going back to New Orleans
    To wear that ball and chain

    Well 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
