House Of The Rising Sun – THE ANIMALS

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

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' 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 all 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 goin' 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
