Song-ography

March 2013 - New Orleans




House of the Rising Sun - The Animals


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



My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man
Down in New Orleans



Now the only thing a gambler needs
Is a suitcase and trunk
And the only time he's satisfied
Is when he's on a drunk




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




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



Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
And God, I know I'm one
