House Of The Rising Sun2-crd  Ricky Skaggs

[Am]There is [C]a house in [D]New Or[F]leans, [Am]They call [C]the Rising [E]Sun,
[Am]It's been the r[C]uin of m[D]any a g[F]irl,
[Am]And me [E]oh Lord [Am]I'm one
(verse 2)
My mother is a tailor she sews those new blue jeans,
My husband he's a gambling man
Drinks down in New Orleans.
(verse 3)
My hu[Am]sband [C]is a [D]gamble[F]r, he g[Am]oes from t[C]own to to[E]wn,
[Am]The only ti[C]me he's sa[D]tified, is w[F]hen,
He d[Am]rinks h[E]is liquor [Am]down.
(verse 3)
Go tell my baby sister, never do what I have done,
Shun that house in New Orleans,
They call the rising sun,
(verse 5)
[Am]One fo[C]ot on t[D]he pla[F]tform, the o[Am]ther's [C]on the tr[E]ain,
I'm g[Am]oing b[C]ack to [D]New Orl[F]eans,
To w[Am]ear that [E]ball and c[Am]hain,
(verse 6)
Going back to New Orlean, my race is almost run,
I'm going to spend the rest of my life,
Beneath that rising sun,
