OCEANS OF SLUMBER – House Of The Rising Sun Lyrics

House Of The Rising Sun Lyrics – OCEANS OF SLUMBER

There is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor girl
And God, I know, I’m one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin’ man
Down in New Orleans

Oh mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun

I got one foot on the platform
The other foot on the train
I’m goin’ back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call the Rising Sun
And it’s been the ruin of many a poor girl
And God, I know, I’m one
