Welcome to Music Answers. What would you like to know?

The lyrics to it start with:

My mother was a Tailor Sewed these new blue jeans My father was a gamblin' man Way down in New Orleans

My mother she would look at me say "son you gotta long road ahead" said "Son that road will make you crazy, But don't forget the words I've said"

And don't forget what your name is You know what the game is

From the north comes From the South comes From Country to Country Mind to mind Generation to Generation

From time to time It'll slip across your mind

To back now And to hang around the House of the Rising Sun

  • Beginning Riff*

Mother was a Tailor Sewed these new blue jeans Father was a gamblin man Way down, waydown in New Orleans

Now the only thing a gamblin' man needs A suitcase, put a load in the trunk And the only time he's satisfied Is when he's on some poor drunk

  • Guitar Solo*

Mother tell your children Not to do what I have done Spend your lives in sin and misery In the house they call The Rising Sun

House of the Rising Suuuuuuuuuunnnnnnn
