<< Eleanor Rigby by the Beatles - Lyrics and Chords  Dan Fogelberg - Same Old Lang Syne Chords and Lyrics >>

House of the Rising Sun was done by several artists – including Bob Dylan and The Animals. I prefer the Animals version. This is a fairly easy guitar song to play, so here are the chords for that.

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

My mother was a tailor

She sewed my new bluejeans

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

—— solo ——

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
