Lyrics
There is a house in New Orleans they call the rising sun
And its been the ruin of many a poor boy and god I know I'm one

My mother she's a tailor sold my new blue jeans
and my father he's a gambling man somewhere down in New Orleans

Now mothers tell your children, not to do the things I'v done
Live your life in sincere misery In the house of the rising sun
