A house they call the "Rising Sun"
Where love and money are made
My father, he was a gambler
Mama died when I was young
And I've worked since then to pleasure the men
At the house of the Rising Sun
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the "Rising Sun"
It's been the ruin of many a good girl
And, oh God, you know I'm one
So mothers, you go tellin' all your daughters
Not to do what I have done
To live a life of sin, shame, and strife
In the "House of the Rising Sun"
There is a house in New Orleans
They call the "Rising Sun"
It's been the ruin of many a good girl
And, oh God, you know I'm one
Oh God, you know I'm one
Oh God, you know I'm one
