House of the rising sun 1  Animals

[Am]    [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]            
There [Am]is a [C]house in [D]New Orleans,[F]  they [Am]call the [C]rising [E7]sun
It's [Am]been the [C]ruin of [D]many a poor [F]boy, and [Am]lord I [E7]know I am [Am]one [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]
If [Am]I had [C]listened to what [D]mama said,[F]  I'd [Am]be at [C]home to[E7]day
But [Am]being so [C]young and [D]foolish poor [F]boy, let a [Am]gambler [E7]lead me as[Am]tray [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]
My [Am]father [C]is a [D]gambling man,[F]  he [Am]goes from [C]town to [E7]town
And the [Am]only [C]time he's [D]satisfied is [F]when he [Am]drinks his [E7]liquor [Am]down [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]
Now the [Am]only [C]thing that a [D]gambling man [F]needs is a [Am]suitcase [C]and a [E7]trunk
And the [Am]only [C]time he's [D]satisfied is [F]when [Am]he is [E7]on a [Am]drunk [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]
Go [Am]tell my [C]baby [D]sister,[F]  never [Am]do like [C]I have [E7]done
To [Am]shun that [C]house in [D]New Orleans,[F]  they [Am]call the [E7]rising [Am]sun [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]
It's [Am]one foot [C]on the [D]platform [F]  and the [Am]other [C]on the [E7]train
I'm [Am]going [C]back to New [D]Orleans [F]  to [Am]wear the [E7]ball and [Am]chain [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [E7]    [Am]    [E7]
[Am]    [C]   [D]   [F]   [Am]    [C]   [E7]    [Am]    [C]   [D]   [F]  [Am] [E7] [Am]
