There is a house in New Orleans,

My mother was a tailor

Down in New Orleans

        Am   C        D       F
And the only things a gambler needs
     Am       C     E      E

And the only time he's satisfied
   Am        E     Am
Is when he's all a-drunk

Oh mothers, tell your children
       Am      C      E     E
Not to do what I have done
 Am        C       D           F
Spend your life in sin and misery
       Am           E      Am
In the house of the Rising Sun

I've got one foot on the platform
    Am         C      E      E
The other foot on the train
    Am    C       D           F
I'm going back to New Orleans
    Am      E        Am
To wear the ball and chain
