Am C dm F

There is a house in New Orleans

Am C E

They call the rising sun

Am C Dm F

It has been the ruin of many a poor girl

Am E Am

And me oh god Im one

 

Am C Dm F

My mother is a tailor

Am C E

She sews those new blue jeans

Am C Dm F

My sweetheart is a drunkbard lord

Am E Am

Drinks down in new orleans

 

Am C Dm F

Well the only thing a drunkard needs

Am C E

Is a suitcase and a trunk

Am C Dm F

And the only time hes satisfied

Am E Am

is when hes On a drunk

 

Am C Dm F

Hell fill his glases to the brim

Am C E

And he passes them around

Am C Dm F

And the only pleasure that he gets out of life

Am E Am

Is a ho-boing from town to town

 

Am C Dm F

Go tell my baby sister

Am C E

Never do what I have done

Am C Dm F

But shun that house in new orleans

Am E Am

They call the rising sun

 

Am C Dm F

Its one foot on the plattform

Am C E

And the other on the train

Am C Dm F

Im going back to new orleans

Am E Am

To wear that ball and chain

 

Am C Dm F

Im going back to new orleans

Am C E

My time is almost done

Am C Dm F

Im going there to spend my days

Am E Am

Beneath that rising sun
