The Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
It's been the ruin of many poor boy
And me, oh Lord, for one

Go to tell my youngest brother
Not to do as I have done
To shun that house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun

Go fill the glasses to the brim
And let the drinks go merry around
We'll drink to the health of a rounder poor boy
Who goes from town to town

The only thing a rounder needs
Is a suitcase and a trunk
The only time he is satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk

So shun that house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
It's been the ruin of many poor boy
And me, oh Lord, for one
