lyrics

There is a house in New Orleans
They call The Rising Sun
And it's the been of many a poor girl
And God, I know I'm one.

If I'd only listened to what my mother said
I'd be at home today
But being so young and foolish, lord
That a gambler lead me astray

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My sweetheart was a drunk, lord
Reach down, in New Orleans

Someone go tell my baby sister
Never to do what I have done
And to sow in that house of sin and misery
They call The Rising Sun

I'm going back to New Orleans
My race is almost run
And I'm going back to live my life, oh lord
Beneath the Rising Sun.
