4:4 Key:A

[Am] [C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7]

There [Am] is a [C] house in [D] New Or[F]leans
They [Am] call the [C] Rising [E7] Sun
And itís [Am] been the [C] ruin of [D] many a poor[F] boy
And [Am] God I [E7] know I'm [Am] one
[C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7]

My [Am] mother [C] was a [D] tailor [F]
She [Am] sewed my [C] new blue [E7] jeans [E7]
My [Am] father [C]was a [D] gambling [F] man
[Am] Down in [E7] New Or[Am]leans
[C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7]

Now the [Am] only [C] thing a [D] gambler [F] needs
Is a [Am] suitcase [C] and a [E7] trunk
And the [Am] only [C] time heís [D] satis[F]fied
Is [Am] when heís [E7] all a-[Am] drunk
[C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7]

Oh [Am] mother [C] tell your chil[D]dren [F]
Not to [Am] do what [C]I have [E7] done
[Am] Spend your [C] lives in [D] sin and mise[F]ry
In the [Am] house of the [E7] Rising [Am] Sun
[C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7]

Well I got [Am] one foot [C] on the [D] platform [F]
And the [Am] other [C]foot on the [E7] train
Iím [Am] going [C] back to [D] New Or[F]leans
To [Am] wear that [E7] ball and [Am] chain
[C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7]

There [Am] is a [C] house in [D] New Or[F]leans
They [Am] call the [C] Rising [E7] Sun
And itís [Am] been the [C] ruin of [D] many a poor [F] boy
And [Am] God I [E7] know Iím [Am] one
[C] [D] [F] [Am] [E7] [Am] [E7] ...... [Dm] [Am]
