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, 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 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 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
