House of the Rising Sun  Joan Baez

[Dm] [F] [A7] [Dm] [A7] [Dm] [A7]  
(Verse 1)
[Dm] There is a [F]house in N[A7]ew Orl[Dm]eans,
They [Bb]call the [D7]Rising [A7]Sun.
And it's [Dm]been the [F]ruin of [A7]many a poor [Dm]girl,
And [Bdim]me, oh [A7]God, for [Dm]one.[A7] [Dm] [A7]
(Verse 2)
If [Dm]I had [F]listened to [A7]what my mother [Dm]said,
I'd have [Bb]been at [D7]home to[A7]day,
But [Bb]I was [D7]young and [A7]foolish, oh, [Dm]God,
Let a [Bdim]rambler [A7]lead me as[Dm]tray.[A7] [Dm] [A7]
(Verse 3)
Go [Dm]tell my [F]baby [A7]sister,[Dm]
Don't [Bb]do what [D7]I have [A7]done,
But s[Dm]hun the [F]house in [A7]New Or[Dm]leans,
They [Bdim]call the [A7]Rising [Dm]Sun.[A7] [Dm] [A7]
(Verse 4)
I'm [Dm]going [F]back to [A7]New Orl[Dm]eans,
My [Bb]race is [D7]almost [A7]run,
I'm [Dm]going [F]back to [A7]spend my [Dm]life
Be[Bdim]neath that [A7]Rising [Dm]Sun.
