First verse
 AmCDF
    There is a house in New Orleans  
 AmCE7E
    they call the Rising Sun  
 AmCDF
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
 AmEAmE
    And, God, I know I'm one   

Interlude
 DFAmEAmE
                                    
Second verse
 AmCDF
    My mother was a tailor 
 AmCE7E
    She sewed my new blue jeans 
 AmCDF
    My father was a gamblin' man
 AmEAmE
    Down in New Orleans    

Interlude
 DFAmEAmE
                                    
Third verse
 AmCDF
    Now the only thing a gambler needs
 AmCE7E
    is a suitcase and a trunk 
 AmCDF
    And the only time that he's satisfied
 AmEAmE
    is when he's on a drunk 

Interlude
 DFAmEAmE
                                    
Organ solo

Fourth verse
 AmCDF
    Oh, mother, tell your children 
 AmCE7E
    not to do what I have done 
 AmCDF
    spend your lives in sin and misery
 AmEAmE
    in the house of the Rising Sun   

Interlude
 DFAmEAmE
                                    
Fifth verse
 AmCDF
    Well I've got one foot on the platform  
 AmCE7E
    the other foot on the train 
 AmCDF
    I'm going back to New Orleans
 AmEAmE
    to wear that ball and chain 

Interlude
 DFAmEAmE
                                    
Sixth verse
 AmCDF
    Well There is a house in New Orleans
 AmCE7E
    they call the Rising Sun  
 AmCDF
    And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
 AmEAmE
    And, God, I know I'm one   

Outro
Strum each of these chords (same chords as Interlude) once while the
organ plays, and end on an Am if you want.

Zacman1989 (report comment to admin):
I believe it's a B-flat and and A7... At least, it sounded pretty good when I played it that way.
kolatchew (report comment to admin):
the C at the end of each verse should be an E
richter026 (report comment to admin):
I believe the C is correct...
Deraj (report comment to admin):
The C is correct but it should be included in the Interlude... Am C D F ...
BIGmanlittleUKE (report comment to admin):

Chrisaty (report comment to admin):
