  • The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun

  • 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 a trunk.

  • And the only time he'll be satisfied

  • Is when he's all 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've got one foot on the platform,

  • the other foot on the train.

  • I'm going back to New Orleans to wear that ball and chain.....

  • 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.
