House of The Rising Sun ~ Five Chord Song

     Am       C          D      F         
There is a house in New Orleans, 
      Am       C       E
They call the Rising Sun
   Am     C      D        F       
And it's been the ruin of many a poor boy
    Am    E         Am   C   D   F  C    E   
And me, I Know, I'm one
   Am     C      D     F    Am       C        E
My mother was a tailor, she sewed my new blue jeans
   Am     C     D        F     Am      E      Am   C
My father was a gambler, Lord, down in New Orleans
        Am   C       D       F          Am       C     E 
Now the only thing a gambler needs is a suitcase and a trunk
        Am   C    D         F        Am        E    Am     C
And the only time he's satisfied, is when he's on a drunk

    Am      C         D         
Oh, mother, tell your children,  
F       Am      C       E 
 not to do what I have done,
       Am         C        D           F           
Don't  spend your lives in sin and misery, 
       Am           E      Am    C
in the house of the Rising Sun
                   Am   C     D       F      
Well  I’ve got one foot on the platform, 
    Am         C      E 
the other foot on the train
    Am    C       D         F    Am        E        Am      C
I'm goin' back to New Orleans to wear that ball and chain
            Am   C        D      F          
Well, There is a house in New Orleans, 
     Am       C      E
they call the Rising Sun
    Am            C       D           F         
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor boy , 
    Am     E        Am   c
and God, I know I'm one
