The Animals - House Of The Rising Sun: chords

Intro: Am C D F Am E Am E

      Am    C        D         F
There is a house in New Orleans
      Am       C      E     E
They call the Risin' Sun
          Am       C       D             F
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy.
     Am      E      Am    C  D  F
And God, I know I'm one.

    Am     C     D      F
My mother was a tailor.
     Am       C        E     E
She sewed my new blue jeans.
    Am     C     D        F
My father was a gamblin' man
 Am      E      Am    C  D  F
Down in New Or-leans.

Am E Am E

        Am     C      D       F
Now the only thing a gambler needs
      Am      C       E     E
Is a suitcase and a trunk
        Am    C    D             F
And the only time he'll be satisfied
    Am       E    Am    C  D  F
Is when he's all drunk

Am E Am E

    Am    C             D      F
Oh, mother, tell your children
       Am      C       E     E
Not to do what I have done
  Am        C        D             F
Spend your lives in sin and misery
        Am           E      Am   C  D  F
In the House of the Rising Sun

Am E Am E

        Am       C            D       F
Well, I got one foot on the platform
    Am         C        E     E
The other foot on the train
     Am    C       D         F
I'm goin' back to New Orleans
    Am        E        Am   C  D  F
To wear that ball and chain

Am E Am E

      Am    C        D         F
There is a house in New Orleans
      Am       C      E     E
They call the Risin' Sun
          Am       C       D           F
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy.
     Am      E      Am  C  D  F
And God, I know I'm one.
