3:4 Key: Am

There [Am]is a [C]house in [D]New Orleans [F]
They [Am]call the [C]Risin' [E]Sun [E7]
And it's [Am]been the [C]ruin of [D]many a poor [F]boy.
And my [Am]God, I [E7]know I'm [Am]one.

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

Now, the [Am]only [C]thing a [D]gambler [F]needs
Is a [Am]suitcase [C]and a [E]trunk [E7]
And the [Am]only [C]time that [D]he's satis[F]fied
Is [Am]when [E7]he's on a [Am]drunk

Oh, [Am]Mother, [C]tell your [D]children [F]
Not to [Am]do what [C]I have [E]done. [E7]
[Am]Spend your [C]lives in [D]sin and mis[F]ery
In the [Am]house of the [E7]risin' [Am]sun.

[Am]I've one foot [C]on the [D]platform. [F]
And the [Am]other's [C]on the [E]train.[E7]
I'm [Am]goin' [C]back to [D]New Orleans [F]
To [Am]wear that [E7]ball and [Am]chain.

There [Am]is a [C]house in [D]New Orleans [F]
They [Am]call the [C]Risin' [E]Sun [E7]
And it's [Am]been the [C]ruin of [D]many a poor [F]boy.

And my [Am]God, I [E7]know I'm [Am]one.
