House of the Rising Sun

 AmCDFAmCE
There is a house in New Or-leans, They call the Rising Sun
 AmCDFAmEAm
And it's been the ruin of many a po' girl, And me, Oh God, I'm one.

 AmCDFAmCE
My mother was a tailor , She sewed my new blue jeans
 AmCDFAmEAm
My sweetheart was a gambler lord, down in New Orleans.
. . .
 AmCDFAmCE
Now the only thing a gambler needs, Is a suitcase and a trunk
 AmCDFAmEAm
And the only time he's satis-fied, Is when he's on a drunk.
. . .
 AmCDFAmCE
He fills his glass up to the brim, And he'll pass the cards a-round
 AmCDFAmEAm
And the only pleasure he gets outa life, Is ramblin from town to town.
. . .
 AmCDFAmCE
Go tell my baby sister, , Not to do what I have done
 AmCDFAmEAm
But to shun that house in New Or-leans, They call the Rising Sun.
. . .
 AmCDFAmCE
Well it's one foot on the platform, . . .and the other foot on the train
 AmCDFAmEAm
I'm goin' back to New Or-leans, to wear that ball and chain
. . .
 AmCDFAmCE
Well I'm goin' back to New Or-leans, my race is almost run
 AmCDFAmEAm
I'm goin' back to end my life, down in the Rising Sun
. . .
 AmCDFAmCE
There is a house in New Or-leans, they call the Rising Sun
 AmCDFAmEAm
And it's been the ruin of many a po' girl, and me, Oh God, I'm one.

Song was not an Animals Original and they lyrics have been changed almost everytime some one records it or plays it ....I am not sure if the original lyrics were ever put to pen and paper..whiel I do enjoy Eric Burdens version of the song .. I like these lyrics also

Where did these lyrics come from? They aren't the ones The Animals used!

This isnt the right chord progression and/or lyrics, the original lyrics were written by the animals and i dont understand why people changed it.
