There is a house in New Orleans
Down in the Vie aux Carree
A house they call the Rising Sun
Where love and money are made

My father he was a gambler
Mother 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 down 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
