House Of The Rising Sun
There is a house down in New Orleans
Down in the vieux carre
A house they call the Rising Sun
Where love and money are made

My father he was a gambler
Mother died when I was young
And I've worked since then
To please the men
At the house of the Rising Sun

There is a house
Down in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
It's been the ruin of many a good girl
And oh god, you know I'm one

So, mothers, you go telling all your daughters
Not to do what I've done
To live a life of sin, shame and strife
In the house of the Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
It's been the ruin of many a good girl
And, oh god, you know I'm one
Oh god, you know I'm one
