267

(Animals)

{VS: Am,C,D,F, Am,C,E,E7}

1.
{Am,C,D,F} There is a house in New Orleans
{Am,C,E7,,} they call the Rising Sun
{Am,C,D,F} And it's been the ruin of many poor girl
{Am,E,Am,E7} and me, o Lord, I'm one

2.
{Am,C,D,F} My mother is a tailor
{Am,C,E7,,} she sewed my new blue jeans
{Am,C,D,F} My father was a gamblin' man
{Am,E,Am,E7} down in New Orleans

3.
{Am,C,D,F} Now the only thing a gambler needs
{Am,C,E7,,} is a suitcase and a trunk
{Am,C,D,F} And the only time he's satisfied
{Am,E,Am,E7} is when he's all a-drunk

4.
{Am,C,D,F} Go tell my baby sister
{Am,C,E7,,} not to do what I have done
{Am,C,D,F} to shun that house in New Orleans
{Am,E,Am,E7} they call the Rising Sun

5.
{Am,C,D,F} (Well I've got) one foot on the platform
{Am,C,E7,,} (and) the other one on the train
{Am,C,D,F} I'm going back to New Orleans
{Am,E,Am,E7} to wear that ball and chain

6.
{Am,C,D,F} Going back to New Orleans,
{Am,C,E7,,} my race is almost run,
{Am,C,D,F} I'm going to spend the rest of my life
{Am,E,Am,E7} beneath the Rising Sun

{NS: Am,C,D,F, Am,E7,Am...}
