(repeat as necessary through the rest of the song.
Approximate lyrics continue)

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans

Now the only things a gambler needs
is a suitcase and a trunk
and the only time he's feeling satisfied
is when he's on a drunk

Now mothers, Tell your children
Not to do what I have done
And spend your life in sincere misery
in the House of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans
they call the Rising Sun
Its been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God i know, I'm one


To get as close to authentic sound as possible;
with each chord, strum sharply the top 4 (Eadg),
then more slowly all strings(Eadgbe) and slowly back
individually (e,b,g,) just b4 chord change.
If u understood it all WELL DONE, and thanks, smeg.
